Event description

About this Event

Go Space Aotearoa , 5:00 - 6:15, Panel Discussion (Online and In Person (Turanga Christchurch Library and Victoria University, Wellington))

Is it so crazy to believe that our small nation at the end of the Earth could become the brightest star in the global space industry? With our innovative "number-8 wire" mentality and track record of disrupting the space sector, we are already making a mark on this exciting industry.

So how can we support the growth of homegrown start-ups and small businesses in Aotearoa? How do we bring a uniquely kiwi competitive advantage on the global stage? Conversely, what challenges do we face? And importantly, how can we build a talent pipeline so the brightest minds from schools, university and industry pursue opportunities in the space sector?

Moderator: Yen-Kai Chen and Sarah Blyde, Space Generation Advisory Council

Panelists: Martin Jenkins, ChristchurchNZ, UofAuckland

Space for Planet Earth, 6:30 - 7:30, Panel Discussion (Online and In Person (Turanga Christchurch Library))

The planet is in a climate emergency. Without any intervention, the planet will be 4 to 5 degrees warmer by the end of the century rendering the Planet mostly uninhabitable with extreme weather, sea level rise, and mass extinctions of life. We have an urgent need to work together and engage a broader community of researchers and innovators in the region to address the problems created by climate change. Today, we have unprecedented access to satellite remote sensing data and technologies that can help us better detect, monitor and measure these changes in the region. This panel will discuss how satellite data is being leveraged today in Aotearoa to address these issues.

Moderator: Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom, Co-Founder & CEO, SpaceBase

Panelists: Orbica, Blue Cradle, SpaceBase, University of Canterbury
