GeoCommunity 2020: Sustainable (R)Evolution

About this Event

GeoCommunity is the flagship event of the Association of Geographic Information (AGI). Organised by geospatial professionals for geospatial professionals, it connects the UK GeoCommunity with specialist senior-level speakers to help shape the latest thinking on a host of topics relevant to the UK geospatial sector.

Geospatial and its role in providing a new vision of sustainability at a time of rapid (r)evolution is the focus of GeoCom20, which takes place online from 17 to 19 November and is completely free to attend.

The agenda for 2020 covers three interactive sessions featuring speakers from government, industry and business to build on last year’s conversation on geospatial’s contribution to achieving net zero. With the adoption of technology happening at pace, changing perceptions about data’s role, increasing internationalism and societal calls for change, we’ll be asking are we at the cusp of a revolution or simply continued rapid evolution?

From how we plan our urban spaces and critical infrastructure, to managing new approaches to the workforce and the accelerating urgency of net zero - the challenges we face continue to impact us locally and unite us globally. It's time for geospatial to embrace the Sustainable (R)evolution by providing a provide a new vision of sustainability.

Each of the three plenary sessions will have a unique programme of speakers and interactive discussion opportunities:

Tuesday 17 November: Changing Cityscapes

Wednesday 18 November: Changing Global Perspectives

Thursday 19 November: Changing Experiences of Location Data

Please check back here as we provide further updates on speaker announcements for each of the plenary sessions.
