Special Session's Summary
Earth Observation is a key technology to monitor, visualize, analyze, and model changes in earth’s surface and a suitable way to better understand the earth system. EO is also a fast-growing economy sector with the need for specialized workforce. Hence national and international organizations and institutions from ESA, NASA, DLR, Universities, and out of school learning places developed programs to integrate EO in lifelong learning from primary, higher to informal education. This session will focus on an international presentation of best-practice-examples, training activities, research results, as well as ongoing and future developments of concepts, methods, and applications of EO Education and Training.
