Register Today For Our Space Café Canada by Dr. Jessica West On 7 May 2021

This Space Café Canada will feature Dr. David Kendall, Founding Member at Outer Space Institute, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in conversation with Dr. Jessica West, Senior Researcher at Project Ploughshares and a friend of SpaceWatch.Global.

Does space need more Canada?

Canada has a strong past in space, but what is the future? Space Café Canada will hold its inaugural episode with Dr. David Kendall, a longstanding leader of Canadian space initiatives both at home and internationally. Drawing on his previous roles including as Director-General of the Canadian Space Agency, Chair of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, Vice President of the International Astronautical Federation, and faculty at the International Space University, we will discuss what the future might hold.

What does Canada bring to space, and how can it lead?

SpaceWatch.Global is a Switzerland-based digital magazine and portal for those interested in space and the far-reaching impact of the space sector.

This Space Café Canada will be conducted in English. Reserve your place today.

#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.
