All economic and business decisions must now consider how the planet is changing, and Earth observation data can improve our economies from top to bottom. GEO Week 2019 and the GEO Ministerial Summit will highlight how investments in Earth observation make this possible, delivering major returns on investment to our economies and communities.


In November 2019, Ministers from GEO’s 105 Member governments, business leaders, heads of international non-profits and passionate experts will meet in Canberra, Australia for GEO Week 2019 and the GEO Ministerial Summit.

Building on the 2015 Mexico City Declaration, GEO Week will focus on accelerating the delivery of GEO’s Strategic Plan and will bring the GEO community together to scale-up the impact of Earth observations.

The week’s events will ensure that data about our planet becomes a core input to strategic decision making and the key to day-to-day economic, environmental and development decisions.

Participants will explore how the integration of Earth observation data into our digital economies is key to driving progress on the big three global policy frameworks: the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Climate Agreement, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
