GeoCommunity is the flagship event of the Association for 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.
GeoCom20: Sustainable (R)evolution
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 new vision of sustainability.
“If we thought we were living in a time of rapid change last year, 2020 has thrown disruption into a whole new light,” says Abigail Page from the GeoCom20 organising committee. “We’re taking the best of GeoCommunity content and channelling some of these changes to widen participation and enable as many people as possible to tap into this unique opportunity to connect the UK GeoCommunity through an agenda packed with expert speakers, interactive sessions and networking.”
