The action aims at raising awareness and knowledge of students and pupils on Copernicus Programme, remote sensing, GIS and related specializations. Arousing of interest in young members of the society will increase their awareness of EO capabilities and facilitate them usage of geoformation in their professional life.

Lectures will be prepared based on Copernicus services.  The content will be modified according to the main field of study and in case of pupils to the age of the listeners. Every lecture will be composed of basic parts: introduction do RS, Copernicus program, Sentinel data, access to Copernicus services, examples of the use of data offered by Copernicus. All lectures will be conducted in Polish.

Participants will develop a proposal of utilization of Copernicus services.
