Represented by its Project Coordinator (Marco Maninci – CMCC), SDGs-EYES attended the EC-ESA Joint Earth System Science Initiative Science for a Green and Sustainable Society. The initiative represented a great chance to further communicate the SDGs-EYES project and connect with stakeholders and the scientific community. The participation was in the form of a scientific poster in the “Climate adaptation – Extremes, multi-hazards, and compound events” session. 

With objectives in the form of reviewing the latest advances in EO and Earth System Science across domains, showcasing the latest ESA and EC funded results, projects, and initiatives and other related objectives, the initiative represented a golden opportunity to further communicate the SDGs-EYES project, build bridges and collaboration channels with relevant stakeholders, and raise awareness about the key features of the SDGs-EYES.

Communicate the SDGs-EYES project

Through the scientific poster it was possible to highlight the project’s objectives, methodology, services, and pilots, in addition to the project’s expected results. The poster gave an overview of the key features that makes the SDGs-EYEs project unique and the important outcomes that it strives to achieve.

Building Bridges

The initiative was one of the main relevant events in the SDGs-EYES calendar given that the project aims at further exploiting the main Copernicus Services and EO Data in calculating SDGs indicators. Through the initiative, it was possible to connect with key stakeholders and the scientific community who showed great interest in following the project and its expected results. It was also a great chance to observe the latest initiatives, projects, and advances in the EO sector. During the session a number of other fruitful relevant initiatives and projects were displayed related to SDGs and climate change. 

Raise awareness

Since the SDGs-EYES key takeaway is the usage of Copernicus Services to have a better and more accurate SDGs Indicators, participating in the initiative was an important occasion to draw attention about the golden opportunity of having a more robust, accurate, and reliable SDGs Indicators through further exploitation of Copernicus main services and EO data in the EU, and how the project’s future results can be further exploited and reused. 

Participating at such events always helps in having a more panoramic view on the latest achievements of the EO and the climate change community. The successful participation was crowned by communicating SDGs-EYES, building collaboration bridges, and raising awareness about the project which are the main objectives of the participation.
