The World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC), a global trade association of commercial sector companies working in the geospatial ecosystem, has become a member of The Hague Humanity Hub. As part of this membership, WGIC will be moving its headquarters from Amersfoort to The Hague.
Welcoming WGIC, Jill Wilkinson, the Humanity Hub’s Managing Director said, “We look forward to enabling the sharing of knowledge and geospatial expertise within the broad ecosystem of organizations in The Hague working for a more peaceful and just world.”
WGIC has shifted its headquarters to support and strengthen The Hague ecosystem, connect with diverse actors working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and leverage the potential of collaboration. “The timing of this move could not be better, and WGIC is very excited that it will be able to contribute its geospatial expertise and focus to the work that the Hub’s existing members are doing around Climate Change and the SDGs,” John Renard, Secretary-General of WGIC said.
“The Hub is an ideal location for WGIC,” said Barbara Ryan, the organisation’s Executive Director. “I can think of no better location for us to join forces with like-minded organizations where we can show the power of geospatial technologies, services and data that touch every person every day! We very much want to collaborate with other partners in this vibrant ecosystem.”
