Event Description:  27 SEPTEMBER 2022 KITION PLANETARIUM & OBSERVATORY 20:00 WORLD SPACE WEEK 2022 - "SPACE AND SUSTAINABILITY" ONLINE SCIENCE CAFÉ Speaker: George Troullias (UN WSW NC CYPRUS) and his team Join Zoom Meeting Meeting ID: 831 2336 2644 Passcode: kition World Space Week is an international celebration of science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition. The United Nations General Assembly declared in 1999 that World Space Week will be held each year from October 4-10. These dates commemorate two events: October 4, 1957: Launch of the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik 1, thus opening the way for space exploration October 10, 1967: The signing of the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies. 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. The World Space Week 2022 theme is “Space and Sustainability.” The National Coordinator for Cyprus for the United Nations World Space Week, Mr. George Troullias and his team, will inform people about this year's World Space Week’s Theme and how to celebrate it. The theme is inspired by how sustainability in space relates to how humanity uses space, most pressingly, the orbital area surrounding Earth-itself a finite resource. There is a much greater story to tell in terms of how space exploration and remote Earth observation can help drive change for our own home planet. This includes measuring climate change, identifying pollution on land and at sea, supporting agriculture in developing nations-an endless list. Of the 169 targets that form the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, 65 directly benefit through Earth observation satellites and related technologies. Achieving the SDGs would be so much harder without the tools and techniques available to scientists through space exploration
