What is the ESA 2019 Living Planet Symposium?
The event, which is held every three years, will take place on 13–17 May 2019 in Milan, Italy. It is organised with the support of the Italian Space Agency. This symposium focuses on how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.
