In this webinar you will i) get an insight of different aspects of Earth observation, ii) learn about the different types of contributions women offer to state-of-the-art technology for Earth observations and their use. iii) showcase women's contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals such as food security
This will be our way to celebrate Women's Day promoting the empowerment of women.
Friday 6th March at 14:00 CET
What: We observe numerous women across generations and continents that demonstrate on a daily basis their skills and knowledge in Earth observation. In celebrating the UN Women’s Day with a webinar, we offer the opportunity to learn about different aspects of Earth observations from a selection of women in the NextGEOSS global network.
Why now: NextGEOSS celebrates the International Women's Day 2020 by letting some of the many women that contribute to the Earth observation value chains, present their work and comment on Generation Equality. Junior and senior women use their talents in technology and science contributing to solve societal challenges in many ways. NextGEOSS is one of the major contributions to GEO building European Earth monitoring and transforming the resulting data into information and knowledge. As of the current GEO work program, the Next-EOS Community Activity is inviting the global Earth observation community to exploit the resources resulting from the NextGEOSS project, among others.
Who is it for: Anyone with an interest in Earth Observation and/or information technology. Additionally, women will see the many different ways they can contribute to science and technology development and parents, fathers and mothers, who want to support their daughters in choosing science and technology careers will identify several profiles of expertise.
