World Space Week, October 4-10, 2018 will celebrate the role of space in bringing the world closer together. The theme is inspired by UNISPACE+50, an historic gathering of world space leaders which will occur in 2018. UNISPACE+50 will promote cooperation between spacefaring and emerging space nations and help space exploration activities become open and inclusive on a global scale.
The growth of World Space Week reflects widespread acceptance of this synchronized time frame to celebrate space, inspire students using space, and promote space programs, policies, and organizations. WSW is celebrated by a network of over 1,000 space-related organizations, the largest such network in the world, according to WSWA.
The Association’s Board each year selects a theme for World Space Week to provide a focus of the activities and events that take a place in over 80 nations during 4-10 October. WSW event organizers are encouraged to incorporate the theme into their activities and promotional materials.
Anyone, from anywhere in the world, can create a World Space Week event. The theme is a guideline for creating events, however, WSWA accepts the registration of any space-related events which start or end from 4 to 10 October as an official World Space Week event.
WSW event organizers are encouraged to incorporate the theme and poster into their activities and promotional materials. To see the history of World Space Week themes, please click here.
