Minimize 20th Anniversary of the Charter

October 20, 2020, will mark the 20th anniversary of the International Charter Space and Major Disasters. To commemorate this milestone we are publishing monthly features looking back on the history and some of the achievements of the Charter during the past 20 years.

We are also releasing special productions for the anniversary, such as a calendar for the year that showcases a selection of imagery acquired by Charter member satellites.

Visit the anniversary page to find out more.
