Some of the most beautiful and remote places on Earth will be featured in a special exhibition at the Living Planet Symposium in Prague, Czech Republic, on 9–13 May.

My Planet from Space: Fragility and Beauty is a collection of satellite images that provide us with examples of an ever-changing Earth: glaciers melting, sea levels rising, rainforests threatened by deforestation, growing desertification affecting croplands, and uncontrolled urban sprawl. They highlight the importance of spaceborne technology in the management and protection of natural resources and the global environment.

Debuted at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome in 2014, the exhibition has also been shown at the UN Headquarters in New York City and at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.

‘My Planet from Space’ will soon be enjoyed by attendees of what is expected to be the largest Earth observation event ever. The exhibition will also be open to the public, free of charge.

Visitors are welcome 9–13 May in the Winter Garden on the ground floor of the Prague Congress Centre.
