Please look up! What will it take for humanity to take action on Space Environmentalism?
This Thursday, Moriba Jah’s “Vox Populi” Space Cafe with SpaceWatch.Global takes its inspiration from the movie “Don’t Look Up” in which astronomers try to convince the world of the existential danger from a comet headed towards Earth. Expect a lively conversation debating these questions:
- What did people take away from the movie “Don’t Look Up”?
- Are there any parallels between “Don’t Look Up” and our space debris and traffic problems?
- What needs to happen for people to take positive action toward solving the space debris and traffic problems?
- Can we learn anything from indigenous people and if so, what?
- Is there a way to recruit empathy from humanity toward space problems and if so, how?
- How do we effectively communicate what we stand to lose if we get this wrong?
