Tackle Citizen Science Challenge – Win a Trip to Eye on Earth Summit in Abu Dhabi
The Eye on Earth (EoE) Alliance is sending four winners to Abu Dhabi, UAE, to attend the 2015 EoE Summit in October, and present their work to thought leaders and decision makers in the environmental data sphere.
EoE is seeking applications that use data to craft creative projects and stunning visualizations that will help relate the urgency of our global environmental situation and enhance our ability to make better day-to-day choices and policy decisions.
The two competitions – a citizen science challenge and a data visualization challenge – are the first in a series of exciting activities in the lead up to the EoE Summit in October this year, and open a virtual space for your participation in global discussions and ideas on sustainable development and environmental issues.
A third Blogging Competition has also been launched, calling on writers and bloggers worldwide to help catalyze the #DataRevolution and address one of the most pressing environmental challenges of our time – how to enhance the availability of information and knowledge to enable a more sustainable future and healthier planet. The winning participant will be named the "Official Eye on Earth Summit 2015 Blogger" and will be hosted in Abu Dhabi from 6 – 8 October to report live on the event for a global audience.
Submissions are due 20 August!type: globe-news
