Landscapes Live is a weekly online seminar series freely accessible to the international scientific community interested in various aspects of geomorphology. Established in summer 2020 during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the goal of better serving the needs of all interested scientists regardless of international mobility and promoting a transition to a greener future.

Landscapes Live is proud to be affiliated with the Geomorphology (GM) division of EGU, as part of EGU’s pioneering CampFire concept to bring together the geoscience community between General Assemblies. Landscapes Live is led by a multinational team of researchers wherein members serve a maximum term of 3 years. The members of the Landscapes Live team reflect the geographical, topical and gender diversity of the Geomorphology division of EGU, which underpins our ethos of equitable science.

Since its foundation, the Landscapes Live seminar has presented over 60 scientific talks free and open to everyone all around the world. Most of the talks are recorded and later uploaded onto our YouTube page which has received upwards of 15 thousand views from 30 different countries across Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Europe, and North, Central, and South America. Landscapes Live is committed to the promotion of diversity and inclusion in the geosciences and has made it its mission to bring talks from a  variety of speakers from different genders, career stages, and locations. Over the past year, Landscapes Live has expanded its virtual activity bringing a day of talks by and for researchers located in the south Pacific. The success of the Landscapes Live Pacific pilot has opened the door to more collaborations that will bridge physical geographical divides within scientific communities. This year, Landscapes Live will further endeavor to expand its activities to the Asia Pacific region. 

In this session, we will present data analytics from our previous talks as well as past and future extensions for the Landscapes Live seminar series. We are looking forward to hearing suggestions for how LL can best serve the geomorphology community and new ideas about how to move Landscapes Live forward from our fellow geoscience community members attending EGU both on-site and virtually.
