This year, the media-workshop will be held on the #ShowYourStripes Day, the International climate change awareness campaign initiated by the climate scientist Ed Hawkins.
This media workshop, features exhibition, workshops and debates; it promotes exchanges with scientists and weather presenters and the discovery of climate solutions provided by partner organisations.
On this occasion, EUMETSAT will explain, in collaboration with Météo-France, how Earth observations and products that integrate measurements and models contribute to the monitoring of the life cycle of forest fires and their impact. The presentation will also demonstrate how the Meteosat Third Generation mission will become a major player in the detection of fires, the monitoring of smoke plumes and burnt surfaces.
EUMETSAT will also take the opportunity of the media-workshop to present to the International climate community, the African Space Art Project (ASAP) which was set up by EUMETSAT and Arianespace and the French non-governmental organisation African Artists for Development (AAD). The ASAP project, which will transfer a replica of an African artwork on to the launcher of the MTG-I1 satellite offers a unique opportunity to 3 African artists to express the link between space, Africa and climate change.
Have a look at the detailed programme of the event and register to attend remotely, here until 18 June. Registration is free of charge.
