Geo for Earth - Episode 6: Mapping our Urban Environments to fight Climate Change

Posted on: 28/07/2022

Geo for Earth is a podcast series that explores the critical role that location intelligence and space data have in helping us understand our planet and tackle climate change.

Organised by Andy Bennett – Space Lead and Luca Budello – Geospatial Lead at Innovate UK KTN, the eight 40-minute episodes will feature discussions around a specific topic with two guest speakers including policy makers, sector specialists, and emerging thinkers.

What is the role of collaboration and trustworthy data in mapping our urban environment to fight climate change and build more resilient cities? In this episode, we explore how collective intelligence and open data sharing can protect cities from natural disasters. Together with our guest speakers, we will also be discussing the rules and agreements needed to be established in order to enable this kind of resilience.
