New Approaches to Space for a Better World: Space for Sustainable Development

This interactive workshop will focus on new approaches in space science, technology and economy to achieve a better and more sustainable world. Come meet and exchange views with the prominent experts, new businesses and innovators to find out about their unique efforts using space as an enabling resource towards a future society for all. This includes efforts that lead to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, for instance towards healthier lives, more opportunities for different genders, enhancing the economy and providing more employment, more resilient infrastructure and inspiring the future generations. The session will aim to contribute to both IAF and IAC 2018 mottos by “Connecting People for Space and Sustainability”; and “#InvolvingEveryone” for achieving sustainable development through space.
