Human Planet Forum 2023

Registration is now open. To register for this meeting, please click here.  Registration is free of charge, but we can only accept registrations until 30 June 2023.

The Human Planet is an initiative in the GEO work programme supporting the GEO Strategic Plan 2016-2025. The Human Planet aims to support novel evidence-based assessment of the human presence on the planet Earth. The partners of the Human Planet are committed to develop a new generation of measurements and information products that provide new scientific evidence and a comprehensive understanding of the human presence on the Planet in support of global policy processes with agreed, actionable and goal-driven metrics.

The 2023 Human Planet Forum has three main objectives:

    to find consensus on post-pandemic priorities for the Human Planet
    to strengthen community connections and enlarge the partnership
    to showcase work done so far and engage with the United Nations High Level Political Forum (held in parallel)

The event will take place over 2 days, the first focused on technical meetings and held at Columbia University's Forum on the Manhattanville Campus and the second to present results and recommendations at the Millennium Hotel, a venue within walking distance of the United Nations in order to engage key partners.

  •  DAY 1 Venue: The Forum, Columbia University (125th & Broadway, Foyer)
  •  DAY 2 Venue: Diplomat Room, The Millennium Hotel (One UN Plaza)
