About this event
The European Space Agency is running a digital event on 8 October 2019. This event is part of European Space Talks, a pioneering awareness campaign inviting the space community to share their space projects and related benefits with our citizens.
In this context, ESA proposes a digital Space Talk dedicated to the next generation. Students around Europe will remotely connect and debate about future Space activities that will be discussed at the upcoming Space19+, the ESA meeting at ministerial level.
The programme is interactive and full of surprises. The opening starts at 17:00 and will be broadcast live, followed by an open debate. Participants will also connect live with ESA Astronaut Luca Parmitano, during the Beyond mission on the International Space Station. An on-line voting to collect the students’ views and produce a set of recommendations that will be presented to European Ministers at Space19+, in Seville, next 27 – 28 November will conclude the evening.
ESA is organising this event in cooperation with HEC Business School and ESTACA Engineering School. ESA invites all Universities with a Space curriculum to remotely connect with Paris, where almost 2000 Aerospace students will be attending.
Last year, European Space Talks, participants organised around 280 events and reached almost 30000 people with their enthusiasm. Due to its great success, ESA is reopening the campaign. This Space Talks is also organised within the framework of the worldwide UN Space Week.
