The ESA Living Planet Symposium took place between 13 to 17 May 2019 in Italy and was organised with the support of the Italian Space Agency.
The event, held every three years, focuses on how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape. Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA's Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth Observation conferences in the world.
This event not only saw scientists present their latest findings on Earth's environment and climate derived from satellite data, but also focussed on Earth observation's role in building a sustainable future and a resilient society.
Participants were able to explore how emerging technologies are revolutionising the use of Earth observation, creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions, and how business and the economy can benefit from this new epoch.
