SPACE, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION (SWF/British Embassy), Aug 31, 2021, virtual, 11:00 am-12:30 pm ET

The Secure World Foundation (SWF) and the British Embassy will co-host a webinar on August 31, 2021 from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm ET.

The topic is “Space, Climate Change, and International Cooperation.”

More information is on the event’s website, which says:

The need for accurate and precise data on the current state of the planet has never been more urgent. Space is playing an increasingly important role in enabling us to monitor and tackle climate change, helping the global community gain a better picture of the urgency to take action.

The Secure World Foundation and the British Embassy will co-host a webinar delving into this timely topic. It will also focus on the applications of space technologies, such as satellites, to help track climate change on Earth and provide critical data for scientists and policy makers, how space will fit into 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) being held in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021, and the UK’s overall global leadership in climate action. The event will also underscore the imperative to work through multilateral fora and international agreements to address this global priority.
