Space for Climate Action Trainings
Following the 2023 UN/Austria Symposium on the theme of "Space for climate action: space applications and technologies supporting sustainability on Earth", UNOOSA is partnering with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Applied Remote Sensing Training Programme (NASA ARSET) to provide a variety of training courses under three broad themes, (1) satellite navigation, (2) Earth Observation data processing, and (3) entrepreneurship. These online courses aim to raise awareness of how space applications support climate action and to enhance participants' capabilities to use them, as well as support budding entrepreneurs in developing a sustainable business plan around climate action.The trainings are delivered by subject matter experts and are conducted exclusively online. Some trainings include demonstrations using open-source data and software. Some trainings consist of both theory and practical applications to consolidate the concepts learnt. By providing collaborative and interactive learning platforms, the trainings aim to connect participants from across the globe with experts and encourage exchange and flow of knowledge and ideas.
