ESA Living Planet Symposium 2022

23 May 2022
The Living Planet Symposium 2022 focuses on how Earth observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.
