GEO Week 2023 Ministerial Summit

GEO WEEK 2023 - Ministerial Summit - 6-10 November Cape Town, South Africa
06 - 10 Nov 2023
Group on Earth Observations
Cape Town, South Africa

Climate. Biodiversity. Air quality. The planet has a lot to say about the things that each and every one of us depend on.

But can you hear what it’s saying?   

There is more data than ever before on our changing Earth. The problem is that many people can’t get hold of it, and when they can, it’s in a language they don’t understand.  

If we’re going to act on what the planet is saying, we need an organization that can bring together the best Earth observation data, technology and science and translate it into free, trusted information that makes sense to everyone.

That organization is GEO. We are coming together at the Cape Town Ministerial Summit to shape our future and respond to the Earth’s calls for action.

Join us for a conversation like no other.

Why attend?

Showcase and discover solutions

In the past four years, GEO has advanced the sharing of open knowledge, enhanced coordination, and developed tools and services that respond to specific global policy challenges. Find out more and showcase your own solutions at GEO Week 2023

Unlock action 

Earth observations can provide the information needed to unlock action on the triple planetary crisis of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution, and drive sustainable development. It’s time to renew our commitment to GEO and forge new partnerships.

Demonstrate leadership

GEO Week and the Ministerial Summit will provide an opportunity to highlight contributions, commitments and Earth observation solutions on a global stage.


The gathering of Ministers, as well as representatives from private sector, civil society and international organizations, represents a unique opportunity for high level networking and discussion.
