HeiGIT at Sustainable Development in Action

HeiGIT ran a workshop on geodata for sustainable development at the Sustainable Development in Action conference organized by the Heidelberg Center for Environment and Momentum Novum at Heidelberg University.

Our workshop provided an overview about the importance of geodata to tackle the sustainable development goals (SDG) of the United Nations, highlighted the importance of bridging the missing geodata gap in large parts of the world and provided practical advice how to become involved in the missing maps project to help to close that gap.

The SDiA conference aims at an interdisciplinary approach towards different aspects of sustainable development and involves action labs and workshops to initialize concrete actions towards a more sustainable world.
