Please be invited to join the 4th edition of the “Seize the Beauty of our Planet” contest for the best satellite image of Earth organised by CloudFerro, the operator of CREODIAS, WEkEO, CODE-DE and EO-Lab platforms. The contest theme for this year’s edition is encapsulated in the motto: “Together for Cool Earth!” as it addresses a critical global issue: GLOBAL WARMING.
The primary objective of the competition is to rally support for the collaborative efforts of numerous institutions, organizations and individuals in combatting climate change’s dire consequences on our planet. As a dedicated Copernicus Relay, CloudFerro also seeks to advocate for the use of Copernicus Earth observation data in environmental research, highlighting its pivotal role in the efficient and cost-effective monitoring of environmental shifts.
How to enter the competition?
- Generate an image using CREODIAS, WEkEO, CODE-DE, or EO-Lab platforms and dedicated software e.g. QGIS.
- If you are not sure how to generate the image, check out our video tutorial for a quick step-by-step guide.
- Submit your image on the contest page by October 12.
Why Global Warming?
Our planet is experiencing a rapid and unprecedented rise in temperatures, with Europe, in particular, witnessing a startling increase, twice the global average since the 1980s. Global warming is responsible for a host of extreme phenomena, including but not limited to droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, flash floods, sea-level rise, and intense storms. These events have far-reaching consequences, impacting agriculture, air quality, drinking water supplies, and more.
The “Seize the Beauty of our Planet” contest is an initiative dedicated to raising public awareness about the ever-evolving environmental changes affecting Earth. Much like previous editions, the contest aims to inspire and engage the EO community in championing this cause by visually capturing the evidence of the transformations occurring within Earth’s ecosystems.
