The 8th Digital Earth Summit is taking place online 30 November – 2 December, (https://desummit2020.org/), and a session titled Digital Earth and Citizen Engagement takes place on the 1st of December, 16:00-17:30 CET.
The International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE) is challenged with the question “How can Digital Earth empower people to improve social and planetary well-being? With this session, they want to approach this larger question starting with the already available framing: the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), and diving into the topic by focusing on particular forms of engagement: citizen science. The session features three speakers providing joint statements on the current situation, and a discussion on the way ahead – with a particular emphasize on Digital Earth, and what might be the most valuable interconnection with existing initiatives and added value of ISDE.
The registration to the entire event is FREE.
