Newsletter #1

Welcome to the first edition of the enviroLENS Newsletter. This newsletter is sent to enviroLENS subscribers and partners and is available online for reference.

enviroLENS is responding to the demands of the jurisdictional sector for ready-to-access evidence and scenario information on environmental situations.

The mission of enviroLENS is to facilitate the utilization of European satellite capacities provided by Copernicus for environmental law enforcement and related cross-cutting sectors. It aims at delivering Earth observation-based services providing evidence on environmental incidences and legal violations in order to support the data gathering process and to foster data-driven decision-making.

The project is coordinated by GeoVille and combines the competence and expertise of Sinergise, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Jožef Stefan Institute, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and DLA Piper to demonstrate and validate the value of using Earth observation in the environmental law sector. 

We thank you for joining us on this journey and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do! 

Best regards,
The enviroLENS team

HELP US. HELP YOU! enviroLENS user questionnaire

enviroLENS is responding to the requirements of the legal sector for ready-to-access evidence and scenario information on environmental cases. The enviroLENS team has designed a dedicated questionnaire to collect baseline information on current practices of monitoring and reporting on environmental law enforcement. Based on the user feedback we will be able to identify potential opportunities for integration and application of satellite Earth Observation within the environmental law enforcement.
