Meet the EO evangelists

The FIRE project is bringing forward the novel concept of Earth Observation (EO) Evangelists, inviting professionals across the FIRE sectors (agriculture, energy, raw materials, infrastructure, marine, and urban development) to advocate the benefits of EO to their peers. They will play the role of an “influencer”. Seven impactful, motivated storytellers have been selected to promote the global benefits of EO in a way that will resonate with their target audiences, after replying to an open call in February 2021. The EO Evangelists will become the voice of the FIRE project and EO within their sector, receive professional presentation training services delivered by professional coaches as well as training related to EO capabilities.

Meet the EO evangelists here.
