2 © GEO Secretariat OAT CB Identify education and training opportunities across GEOSS SBAs. Develop synergies, encourage cross-fertilization and address common challenges. Activities – Subtasks CB-09-02a: Recognition of Cross Border Education and Training in Earth Observation (PoC ITC) No reported activity since 2010 when planning the ISPRS TC-VI Education & Outreach CB-09-02b: Summer Institute on Climate Information for Public Health (PoC IRI) The course has been developed and continues to be developed by IRI with contributions form CIESIN and Mailman School of Public Health, 2009 reports available online. Feedback on outputs planned for May 2011 not yet reported on.

3 © GEO Secretariat OAT CB-09-02… CB-09-02c: UN-SPIDER/GEO Summer Schools on Space-based Solutions for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (PoC UNOOSA, INPE) Spring school held in Brazil (2008) and Argentina (2010). No activities planned for 2011 CB-09-02f: GLOBE/GEO Climate Education Project (PoC GLOBE) Student Climate Research Campaign planning workshop (2009) GLOBE professional development workshops to facilitate climate change research in secondary schools and GLOBE schools and teachers selected to be part of the pilot project (2010) No activities planned for 2011

4 © GEO Secretariat OAT CB-09-02… CB-09-02g: GEONETCast Training (PoC NOAA) Strategize user interface and delivery strategies (Ongoing) Build university and educational center partnerships (Ongoing) Support training workshops, including (Ongoing) Several training workshops at various scales, all targeting developing countries that are organized in the frame of the DevCoCast project. These workshops also support the use of CBERS imagery in Africa. Regular training courses organized by ITC (cross-linking with CB-09-03b).

5 © GEO Secretariat CB Questions for Discussion 1 Will the task go on to Work Plan? Yes 2 Which Tasks (ID) and / or Components (c) will the task contribute to? ID-02 3 What resources are available from this task for Implementation? Activity or subtask linked e.g. CB-09-02g uses HR already available for GEONETCast system 4 What is needed for the Work Plan? Clarity on which sub-tasks will be active on the new work plan More activities to support the building of individual capacity 5 Do we anticipate something from the task to demonstrate at Plenary? Material from GEONETCast ? 6 Actions needed from today to November (Plenary)? Solicit material from GEONETCast 7 Other considerations? How to ensure the aim of the task is met as it is crucial for GEO CB
