Esri Founder and President Jack Dangermond to Talk about UN Sustainable Development Goals at EFGS

Redlands, California—Esri, the global leader in spatial analytics, today announced that its founder and president, Jack Dangermond, will be a keynote speaker at the EFGS 2017 Conference in Dublin, Ireland, to be held Thursday, November 2 through Friday, November 3.

The European Forum for Geography and Statistics (EFGS) started as a voluntary cooperation between National Statistical Institutions (NSIs) in the Nordic countries on the use of geographic information system (GIS) technology and statistics. Today, the EFGS has national contact persons from more than 40 states and territories and holds annual conferences and meetings.

Dangermond will be a keynote speaker at this year’s conference to discuss the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how Esri’s location intelligence technology, known as The Science of Where, can help countries and engage communities around the world to achieve these goals.
