Watch the 2019 Plenary Session
KEYNOTE | President, Esri
How humans understand the world is continually evolving. Today, GIS and geospatial infrastructure are powering this understanding by helping to create smarter organizations, so everyone can effect positive change in our world. This is the intelligent nervous system that connects us all and allows for the evolution to happen in real time, using geography to bring it all together.
Ambassador Stefano Toscano
KEYNOTE | Director, Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD)
Land mines and unexploded remnants of war are found in more than one-third of the world's developing countries. They are deadly reminders of conflict, affecting the innocent long after the conflict ends. GIS is the foundation to enable safe demining and the recovery of land to productive use. It also supports broader agendas, including humanitarian efforts, for long-term sustainable development to ensure communities thrive safely for generations to come. This is GIS for peace—sustainable peace. Learn how GICHD is using GIS to build sustainable peace for a safer, more optimistic future.
Jane Goodall and E.O. Wilson
KEYNOTE | The Importance of Biodiversity Conservation at a Global Scale: A Conversation with Jane Goodall, E.O. Wilson, and Jack Dangermond
Jack Dangermond welcomes two of the greatest minds in conservation and biodiversity—Jane Goodall and E.O. Wilson—to share what they've learned over their legendary careers to help future generations protect our Earth. Together, these visionaries will explore how we all play a part to achieve global biodiversity conservation through community engagement, scientific research, and geospatial solutions.
