An invitation to participate
We face a climate crisis, with associated widespread losses of natural ecosystems and biodiversity. In 2015 in Paris, global leaders agreed on 17 sustainable development goals and 169 associated targets to be met by 2030. Satellites provide a unique ability to support sustainable development with scaled analyses.

Present your research on the latest satellite sensors and applications supporting sustainability.
