Nothing more than human health has been an element of concern during the last couple of years.
The pandemic has brought to focus the global scale of diseases and the inter-connection of a number of factors (e.g. climate, ecological conditions, global travel and trade, urbanization) when looking at risk, spread and treatment of threats to human health.
The health theme will be one of those on stage at next year’s Living Planet Symposium, one of the largest events worldwide dedicated to Earth observation.
You are invited to submit an abstract (deadline 26 November 2021) and gain the opportunity to be a speaker in one of the dedicated sessions at the symposium.
You may like to present the latest scientific advances on the use of Earth observations for Vector Borne Diseases, discuss opportunities and challenges to identify the road map to move from big data towards great value for public health, or to showcase examples on the use of Earth observations, geospatial technologies, and social media to identify threats to human health (e.g., from air quality or water quality), to provide warning to reduce health risks, and to facilitate remedial actions and response measures in the event of disease outbreaks.
Any of the following two sessions might be the most relevant for you:
The Living Planet Symposia bring together scientists and researchers from all over the world to present and discuss the latest findings on Earth science and advances in Earth observation technologies. Moreover, these extraordinary events also offer unique forums for decision-makers to be better equipped with information, for partnerships to be forged and formalised, for space industries to join the conversation, for students to learn, and for all to explore the concepts of New Space such as the digital transformation and commercialisation.
