‘SpaceUp GLIS 2016’ – Join the coolest Space – related Unconference

What is a SpaceUp?

A SpaceUp is a space related ‘unconference’ in which the delegates themselves decide what is presented and talked about. Before the SpaceUp, a basic framework is decided on by the organizers. On the day of the SpaceUp, the participants arrive and propose talks, discussions and activities they think will be of interest and which will stimulate interaction and debate. Spaces Up’s usually feature intense use of social media and are frequently video-streamed live. SpaceUp’s are real-time, collaborative, engaging and innovative.

#SpaceWatchGL Opinion: Say YES to diversity and gender equality in the space sector: a look at the Diversity and Gender Equality Project Group of the SGAC

Diversity is difficult to measure and quantify, given all the aspects and shapes it takes, yet it is easy to witness and observe the lack of it in many fields including the space sector. If the space sector and all its disciplines should be used to help improve life on earth and observe it (amongst other purposes), shouldn't it be represented by all terrestrial individuals equally? In an ideal world, yes! But history and social biases have prevented our progress towards this perfect world, and we find ourselves today with a space sector still dominated by cis white-male individuals.
