Конкурс предложений: вызов планеты «Смотри, меняй мир»



Planet is looking for new ways to help solve climate and environmental challenges through the use of daily satellite imagery, tools and analytics. Planet’s mission to make global change visible, accessible and actionable aligns with the European Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which can help support economists in making more informed decisions.

Planet is excited to partner with those seeking to use Planet and Copernicus data to find creative solutions in the following areas of interest:

        Sustainable Food Systems, both in agriculture and maritime, i.a.:

        Ensure more sustainable food systems that guarantee nutritious, affordable and safe food with minimum use of pesticides and fertilisers and minimum greenhouse gas emissions

        Achieve optimisation of land use, especially in areas affected by rapid urbanisation and/or land degradation

        Provide urban farming solutions

        Propose sustainable fishing solutions

        Biodiversity, i.a.:

        Detect negative deforestation trends

        Measure coral bleaching and its impact on ecosystem services

        Understand the impact of heat and drought stress on habitats

Submissions are not limited to the above mentioned areas and can address all potential aspects linked to the European Green Deal and the SDG. The most compelling solutions should have a strong technical underpinning, be feasible and achievable.
