Earth Day is intended to raise awareness of the importance of protecting our planet for future generations.

Europe is a world leader in Earth Observation. The Earth Explorer and Copernicus programs provide crucial data for environmental services and foster the development of cutting-edge technologies for the study and understanding of our planet.
Through ESA’s Climate Change Initiative, long-term data records provide a crucial line of evidence and hard data, enabling scientists and decision-makers to take action to curb emissions and their adverse effects on climate change.
