Advancing Earth Observation Forum 2021 @ Online

The Advancing Earth Observation Forum 2021 is a new, completely online, single-day event, focused on high-value sessions that will give members of the EO community the opportunity to actively engage, contribute, learn and connect with others. This will be a chance for individuals, businesses and organisations to build professional expertise and contribute to Australia’s collective national capabilities.

The 2021 event will be followed by monthly webinars from September 2021 to June 2022 and an in-person and interactive Advancing Earth Observation Forum that will take place in Brisbane in August 2022.

GEO Week 2021 @ Online
Nov 22 @ 9:00 am – Nov 26 @ 5:00 pm
GEO Week 2021 @ Online

During GEO Week 2021, the Group on Earth Observations will present the multidisciplinary activities of the GEO Work Programme that address policy agendas involved in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP26, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) COP15, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration.

The online event will include the GEO-17 plenary, plus anchor and side events. Time will be scheduled each day for virtual networking. On Monday, November 22, the 56th Executive Committee will be held as a closed meeting.

Of particular importance will be the anchor events: These are the main events designed by GEO week 2021 organisers to explain the multidisciplinary nature of GEO through the concept of nexus thinking. Working on multiple topics simultaneously is essential in today’s rapidly changing environmental and social conditions. For example, work in one area will have a knock-on effect or impact in another area, such as the water, energy and food nexus. These events are linked to the global policy agendas that underpin most of GEO’s work.

Survey and Spatial NZ’s 2022 conference will be held from 1 to 3 August at the Novotel Lakeside, Rotorua. The conference is the biggest continuing professional development event of the year for NZ surveying and spatial professionals. It invites sharing of knowledge amongst peers, bringing together networking opportunities for all delegates and is an essential event for professional development and connectivity within the sector.

The choice of Rotorua as the location is apt, given the conference theme of ‘Turning up the Heat’. The organisers aim to stimulate discussion regarding challenges in regional areas, which include climate change and developments outside of Auckland.
