Biodiversity and environmental protection, in particular the EU-2030 Biodiversity Strategy with the title “Bringing nature back into our lives”, are at the core of the Green Deal and the EU’s recovery plan from the COVID-19 pandemic. Biodiversity and ecosystems are vital for every part of our lives and economies, ranging from food, health and medicines, water and air filtration, materials, recreation, and wellbeing. Key factors to endanger Europe’s nature comprise land- and sea-use change; over-exploitation of natural resources; climate change; pollution and invasion of alien species. The Copernicus Programme provides data and information useful to monitor a variety of environmental parameters over land, the atmosphere and the oceans and thus to take better informed decisions to safeguard nature.

About the Copernicus4regions webinars
In these 5 targeted webinars, representatives of regional administrations, public users, regional stakeholders, politicians, EU representatives, and other interested stakeholders will engage in an online discussion on the dimension of Copernicus for the green and digital transition in Europe. Copernicus users will share their experiences:
- how Public Administrations in Europe have successfully incorporated the use of Copernicus into their organisations and workflows;
- what are the benefits for their territories and public policies and the outlook to the future;
- and eventually why Copernicus is a game-changer in the development of sustainable practices and better public policies.
These 1h webinars will be based on key user domains, such as water quality or forestry, (more information on the attached leaflet).
