World Space Week Theme
Each year, the World Space Week Association (WSWA) selects a theme for the upcoming World Space Week (WSW) to provide a focus of the activities and events that take a place throughout the world, during 4-10 October . WSWA is pleased to announce the 2016 World Space Week Theme: “Remote sensing: Enabling Our Future”.
“Remote Sensing: Enabling our Future” is an inward looking theme, which celebrates Earth Observation from Space for the betterment of the human race. It highlights a host of classic Earth Observation missions such as the U.S. Landsat mission, the work of intergovernmental groups such as GEOSS Group on Earth Observations and emphasizes applications such as environment and agriculture monitoring, land use mapping and new uses such as location based services. Last year’s theme, “Discovery” celebrated the exciting discoveries in space, teaching about our origins and our future and resulted in 1900 events in 73 countries.
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.
