GEO Week 2023

By Group on Earth Observations

GEO Week 2023

📅 6 -10 November 2023
Cape Town, South Africa

Climate. Biodiversity. Air quality. The planet has a lot to say about the things that each and every person does. There is more data than ever before on the changing Earth. The problem is that many people can’t get hold of it, and when they can, it’s in a language they don’t understand.

If the world going to act on what the planet is saying, the planet needs an organization that can bring together the best Earth observation data, technology, and science and translate it into free, trusted information that makes sense to everyone. GEO and other organizations are coming together at the Cape Town Ministerial Summit to shape the future and respond to the Earth’s calls for action.

Showcase and discover solutions

In the past four years, GEO has advanced the sharing of open knowledge, enhanced coordination, and developed tools and services that respond to specific global policy challenges.

Unlock action

Earth observations can provide the information needed to unlock action on the triple planetary crisis of climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution, and drive sustainable development. It’s time to renew the commitment to GEO and forge new partnerships.

Demonstrate leadership

GEO Week and the Ministerial Summit will provide an opportunity to highlight contributions, commitments, and Earth observation solutions on a global stage.


The gathering of Ministers, as well as representatives from the private sector, civil society, and international organizations, represents a unique opportunity for high-level networking and discussion.
