2023 GEO Week
The 2023 GEO Week took place in Cape Town, South Africa, on 6-10 November 2023. Organized by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the event included the GEO-19 Plenary from 8-9 November and the GEO Ministerial Summit on 10 November.
The theme for this year’s GEO Week and the Ministerial Summit was The Earth Talks, reflecting GEO’s unique ability to listen to what our planet is saying and inspire actions through trusted, open Earth observation solutions. Community events, booths and an exhibition showcased the capability of the GEO.
Showcasing Earth observation in the Pacific, and for his dedication to Earth Observation (EO) in the Pacific Islands, Jean Massenet was awarded the 𝗘𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗟𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗔𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱 at the GEOWeek 2023 ceremony.

His innovative approach, centered on equitable development and regional collaboration, has paved the way for concerted solutions to address local challenges. His inspiring #leadership fully aligns with GEO's core values, thus fostering significant and sustainable progress in the field of Earth Observation.
