GIS for a Sustainable Development Conference - May 9-11th in Geneva, Switzerland

The GIS for a Sustainable World Conference is co-organized by the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT) and Esri.

Applied Geography for a Better Future

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls on you—the international community—to take on the global issues outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Hosted in Geneva, Switzerland, the GIS for a Sustainable World Conference is the place to discover how intelligent maps and apps can accelerate your work to achieve the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

This year’s conference features an engaging, interactive environment that drives collaboration with your peers. You’ll learn how other GIS users are enjoying improved workflows and efficiencies, and learn how big data and real-time data analytics can unlock the full potential of your data. Go in-depth on new, innovative solutions like virtual and augmented reality apps, with an agenda full of immersive technical workshops, interactive discussion groups, and engaging breakout sessions.

Start leveraging powerful GIS technology in new ways to build a better world—by helping to end poverty, inequality, climate change, and improving health.

If you are working with an international organization or NGO, we welcome you to join us in Geneva. Apply to attend here:
