Empowering Tomorrow's Earth Observers: IGARSS 2024 CSR Initiative

In line with our dedication to environmental stewardship and education, IGARSS 2024 proudly presents a special Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity: Remote Sensing Students Projects - Empowering School Communities for Environmental Solutions.

About the Activity:
Primary and secondary education students will showcase their knowledge of remote sensing gained through their participation in the SpaceEDUnity Erasmus+ Project. Utilizing EO Browser satellite data, students will address and monitor environmental problems in their communities. Specific guidelines for project development were provided, aligning with the themes of IGARSS 2024.

Our aim is to empower students with practical skills in Earth observation and environmental problem-solving. By engaging with real-world data and challenges, students will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of remote sensing in environmental monitoring and management.

Why It Matters:
As the future custodians of our planet, it's crucial to equip students with the tools and knowledge to tackle environmental issues effectively. By involving them in hands-on projects that utilize satellite data, we inspire a sense of curiosity and responsibility towards Earth's well-being, fostering a new generation of environmentally-conscious citizens.
