Bonn, Germany: Host of this year's Living Planet Symposium


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Bonn, a city in western Germany that straddles the Rhine river. The city is located in the Rhine-Ruhr region, the country’s largest metro area with over 11 million inhabitants.

Bonn is one of the oldest cities in Germany, and is the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven. The memorial and museum honoring the composer’s birthplace, Beethoven House, is one of the most visited music museums in the world.

In 2022, ESA’s Living Planet Symposium is being held May 23 to 27 in Bonn. This is one of the largest Earth observation conferences.

“Held every three years, the symposium brings together scientists and researchers, as well as industry and users of Earth observation data, from all over the world to present and discuss the latest findings on Earth science,” explains ESA.

“Organized with the support of the German Aerospace Center, the week-long event focuses on how Earth observation contributes to both science and society. With over 240 scientific sessions on Earth observation science and satellite missions, there will also be a wide range of sessions focusing on advances in artificial intelligence, digital twins of Earth, commercial opportunities thanks to the space industry, the upcoming ESA Ministerial Council in 2022, and much more.”
