« Space for our Planet » exhibition will be displayed on the fences of UN Bonn building in front of the World Conference Centre in Bonn (WCCB) at the occasion of the ESA’s Living Planet Symposium. Organised with the support of the German Aerospace Center DLR, the symposium brings together scientists and researchers from all over the world, as well as industry leaders and users of Earth observation data to present the latest findings on Earth science.
A cutting ribbon ceremony took place on 23 May at 8h30 outside the WCCB in presence of the ESA Director General, Josef Aschbacher, Walther Pelzer, Member of DLR Executive Board and Director General of the German Space Agency and Simonetta Cheli, Director of Earth Observation Programmes at ESA.
The partnership with DLR allowed us to add testimonials on how Space can be used to monitor water quality, set up early warning systems against wildfires or help farmers adapt to climate change.
Curated by Fiorella Coliolo and Benoit Delplanque, the exhibition is developed under the patronage of UNOOSA, with the support of ESA, European Commission, ASI, CNES, DLR, Portugal Space, NEREUS, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and the Canadian STEM NGO, GIVE.
