Satellites for Sustainable Urban Living, 22nd Nov

This workshop will look at some of the ways that the information collected by satellites can be used to improve the ecological, cultural, political, institutional, social and economic life of a city without leaving a burden on future generations. It is expected that local authorities and planners, environmental groups, business and trade organisations, and companies involved in satellite applications will benefit from sharing their experience or finding out what help is available or waiting to be harnessed from the space programme.
