We are pleased to announce that SSSI will this year be partnering with SIBA|GITA and DELWP to present the 2020 Victorian Spatial Showcase & eSummit.
This will be held as a special online event over two days in November.
Join us as we bring together government agencies, industry academics and community spatial enthusiasts to connect and learn more about the innovative spatial data, technology and services that Victoria has to offer. On the agenda is a mix of lightning talks and presentations by a diverse range of industry professionals, interactive sessions, networking opportunities and more.
The event is also aligned with World GIS Day, taking place on Wednesday 18 November. GIS Day is a day to help others learn about geography and the real-world applications of GIS that are making a difference in our society, so we hope this event is an apt way for our local GIS heroes to celebrate their day!
Spatially enabling the Sustainable Development Goals
This year, we’re going to tackle some of the world’s most complex problems – our 2020 theme is exploring how the spatial industry is enabling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through innovation. But what are the SDGs you might ask? The 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all UN Member States in 2015. provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call to action by developed and developing countries across the globe.
During the eSummit, the Victorian spatial community will draw on its collective experience to identify opportunities and challenges for us all to achieve these goals.
The full program for the event is now available here!
Please note this is subject to change.
The event will be held from 9.00am – 12.30pm over two days on 18 – 19 November 2020, using Zoom software. You’ll receive links to the sessions closer to the event.
If you can’t make the live event, make sure you still register below and you will be sent the link to the recordings to watch at your leisure.
Young Professionals eNetworking
