Can we achieve 100% equality in outer space?

Equalaccessto spaceneeds equal access to decision makingabout the future use of space,the laws to governand jobs to be created.

The first rule of Space Law is that everyone must benefit equally from Space. But, 95% of countries do not have independent access to space. Greater representation is needed to ensure that all countries, whether they have space capabilities or not, and all communities get their voice heard. We believe that if we act now, at the beginning, then we can design out inequality from the space sector instead of having to go back later and fix it.

The Space Knowledge Summit is an annual astrosociology event. We share bold ideas in space law, social impact and finance. Our aim is to eradicate inequality in space. We connect young adults, policy makers and industry to help shape the future of space. To widen participation in space and remove economic barriers, the summit is held entirely online, free to attend and free to exhibit.

Space Knowledge Summit is proud to be part of World Space Week (

Join us for the world's biggest* discussion on the future of space, jobs and society.

*Or smallest, depending on how many people turn up :)

What if the decisions made today create inequality for future generations – the jobs they can apply for and the world they will live in? We believe thinking about the future today can help design out inequality. To celebrate this idea, our theme for the first Space Knowledge Summit is ‘A Design for Life: Worldbuilding & Equality in Outer Space‘.
