The 5th Young Surveyors conference in Amsterdam is a two day event that provides an environment for Young Surveyors from all over the world to meetup and discuss the issues facing their future. 

Date: Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 May 2020

How to build and manage a densely populated coastal country with a land area of which nearly half is below sea level? The Dutch know how to do just that, and have done so for centuries. The role of surveyors in this endeavor has been crucial. And their role is even more crucial today when we have to protect our country against the impact of climate change, causing sea level rise. Being Young Surveyors we have to contribute to this:

Reclaim the future by mapping the new world!

During the 5th Young Surveyors Conference we will focus on sensing technologies and new spatial data processing technologies based on the ever developing and integrating fields of geodesy and geo-information. We will address worldwide issues related to integrated land and water management to address the impacts of climate change and urban growth.

Join us to connect and learn the importance of geospatial information and its ability to connect the world.
