Earth Observation for the European Green Deal - The Match Made in Space

Join Planet's official EU Green Week Partner Event. During this session, we will discuss the relevance of Earth Observation (EO) in supporting the European Green Deal. EO can create powerful information feeds that can help decision makers, businesses, and citizens at large to make better choices. EO has great potential to offer real insights into our planet, but it is still largely untapped. Addressing some of these challenges at the European level can help realize the full potential of EO and deliver concrete socio-economic benefits, particularly when leveraging EO assets (including data and technical expertise and capabilities). Not leveraging EO could mean missing monumental opportunities for the European community to use the best available tools in monitoring the rapidly changing environmental landscape—one that is shaping the future. The event will be virtual and it will begin from 16:30 to 17:30 on Monday, 19 October 2020. It will be an interactive panel discussion and it will consist of a 45 minute debate and a 15 minute Q&A with the audience.

Panelists include:
Will Marshall, CEO and Co-Founder, Planet
Diederik Samsom, Head of Cabinet EVP Frans Timmermans, European Commission
Grega Milcinski, CEO and Co-Founder, Sinergise
Sirpa Pietikäinen, Member of the European Parliament, EPP Finland

Moderator: Agnieszka Łukaszczyk, Senior Director - European Affairs, Planet
