One of our greatest hopes is young people, those who will inherit the earth and the challenge of restoring its balance - the ones who will live long enough to know surely whether this peaceful battle for the planet is finally being won.
-“Earth in the balance” by Al Gore
During the last decade the Digital Earth concept has been commonly recognized, and the Geo-informatics technology has been widely applied in dealing with issues of global change. In order to implement the idea of Digital Earth and to reach the goal of cultivating spatial information technology, the Academia Sinica, the Ministry of the Interior, National Applied Research Laboratories and Chinese Culture University (CCU), have hosted the TIDES conference (Taipei International Digital Earth Symposium ) each year in Taipei, Taiwan since 2003. Growing in recent years to become one of the biggest geo-information events in Taiwan, in 2008 about five hundred participants came to enjoy a week of technical sessions, tutorials, exhibits and social activities. .Continuing previous TIDES discussions on Digital Earth theory and applications, TIDES 2010 will represent a unique opportunity to meet and share ideas with a gathering of local and international scientists, experts and educators engaged in the fields of Digital Earth, Geo-informatics and Geospatial Information Science.
The 7th Taipei International Digital Earth Symposium (TIDES 2010) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan from May 20th to May 21th, 2010. This year’s theme is “Digital Earth for the New Generation Towards a Green Earth”, and topics are related to the fields of Earth Observation & Technology, Social Science & Education, and Environmental Change & Strategy. Our focus through these discussions is to upgrade Digital Earth education for the young generation and attract more young people to become involved in Digital Earth study, to help restore the balance now missing in our relationship with the Earth.
We are hoping, through this conference, to show how Digital Earth technology and the data it provides can best be applied to achieve sustainability in all sectors of society and the environment and thus better human life in this planet.
