Citizens' debate on space for Europe | 10 September 2016
The European Space Agency organised the first citizens' consultation about space
The Citizens' Debate on Space for Europe is a unique - indeed the first - consultation organised in every member state of the European Space Agency (ESA). Over 1600 citizens selected to reflect the socio-demographic diversity of their country debated space issues during a day-long meeting. In order to consolidate the 22 national results reports into one European report, all debates followed the same instructions and the same set of questions has been answered.
The European Space Agency organised this debate as it intends to take in new actors to develop its future orientation and nurture its strategy. It is crucial to the Agency to involve more actors, especially citizens, in choices that will respond to societal challenges, put space at their service and impact coming generations through space innovation, exploration and international space cooperation.
