SINC 2023 – Day 0 – First impressions from Male with Remco Timmermans

Welcome to our special reports from a special space event: the inaugural Space for Island Nations Conference, held here at the Maldives, in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Starting tomorrow, we will look at how space benefits the people of the world’s island nations. Space supports these often vulnerable parts of the world in their fight against the effects of climate change. Space also provides opportunities for these nations, to develop a space economy and reap the new benefits that the new space economy can offer to students, entrepreneurs and businesses alike.

The #SINC2023 conference provides a unique, new angle to space. Follow us this week to find out what this means.
