56th International Astronautical Congress (IAC)
UNESCO Remote Sensing Unit present in Fukuoka at the International Astronautical Congress: UNESCO had the honor of being invited to make a highlight lecture at the IAC-Fukuoka 2005.
This was an excellent opportunity for UNESCO to acquire visibility in one of the most prestigious space congresses.
The presentation was very well received; as a result additional space agencies contacted UNESCO to become partners of the Open Initiative.
On the announcement of the ending phase of the “Gorilla Conservation Project (Bego)” done by ESA and UNESCO, this project had the honor of appearing in the GEO magazine.
This project has attracted the attention of the press; interesting articles were also published in Le Figaro, Le Monde and various other international newspapers.
