9NovPassionate about earth observation, climate change, and civic science? Or simply love a good idea worth sharing? Then come join us on November 16th, 2017 for another TEDxRheinmain event. This one is called "Decoding the Blue Dot" because we will present you a line-up of speakers that will share ideas and stories about the importance – and the beauty – of Earth observation, how it can help us in making lives better all over the world and understand the effects of climate change. 29SepDATANAUTS: Decoding the Future Well, that we've learned: Pretty much everything is data today.
