Sentiboard forum to help spark collaboration at Living Planet Symposium
27 April 2022
Remote sensing experts who are presenting at the Living Planet Symposium next month now have a fresh way to showcase their findings, thanks to a new open-access digital forum called Sentiboard. Launched in 2021, the forum enables the growing community of Copernicus Sentinel data users – from early career researchers to seasoned Earth science veterans – to share their latest contributions to remote sensing.

Taking place in the city of Bonn in Germany from 23 to 27 May, the Living Planet Symposium is set to highlight the fundamental role that European Earth observation activities – including the Copernicus Sentinels – have for fostering improved understanding of the planet’s systems.
As well as helping the global community track climate change, these efforts are enabling the commercial development of sustainable technologies across society, improving people’s daily lives and accelerating the transition to a green, decarbonised economy.
This year’s symposium comes at a pivotal moment for global climate action, taking place months after the international community agreed on a renewed commitment to cut planet-warming emissions at COP26 in Glasgow, UK.
The 2022 edition of the event is expected to be the biggest and most wide-ranging Living Planet Symposium to date, enabling hundreds of experts from around the world to showcase the numerous ways in which space data facilitates understanding of Earth’s changing environment.
The Sentiboard forum is poised to help highlight these findings by providing an online space that spurs the sharing of information across a dynamic community of Copernicus Sentinel data users.
Using the forum, symposium attendees can increase the reach of their presentations by posting messages – which could include links to further information as well as images – that are disseminated to the Sentiboard community.

Users can publish messages using a quick and easy process. More information on this can be found in the Sentiboard author’s guide which sets out in detail how to share content.
Being held on 23–27 May 2022 in Bonn, Germany, ESA’s prestigious Living Planet Symposium offers attendees the unique opportunity to hear first-hand about the most recent developments in the field of Earth observation. Attendees will be able to hear about the latest scientific findings on our planet and how observing Earth from space supports environmental research and action to combat the climate crisis, learn about novel space technologies and about the new opportunities emerging in the rapidly changing sector of Earth observation. This exciting event not only attracts scientists and academics, but also those working in the space industry, institutional stakeholders, data users, students and citizens – an amazing opportunity to all meet in-person after the Covid pandemic.
Calling on all interested users of Sentinel data, who would like to submit their results, turning their experiences into 'success stories'.
If you have a good story to tell, of how any of the Sentinel satellites are producing data that bring benefit to your work and/or to society, please contact the Sentinel Online Editor Malì Cecere at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your proposals.
