The European Space Agency invites you
The European Space Agency is organising 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.
On 10 September 2016, about 50 to 120 citizens gathered in a city of each ESA member state with a common objective: debating about science, space exploration or space debris management.
In a friendly atmosphere, they discussed these issues to draw a citizen vision of space and to define the priorities for the future of space activities as they see it. An enriching day in every of the 22 ESA member states where the debate was organised on the same day, following exactly the same method. Public figures joined to witness the debates and encourage the participants.
You can consult on the website all the results of the multiple-choice questions (quantitative results) for Europe and country per country.
You can also use filters to consult the results. The filters concern categories of age, gender, occupation or the level of knowledge about space declared by the participants.
