to Our Space
To connect the space curious to the space serious through events, experiences and storytelling using the awe and wonder of space exploration.
Space for a Better World was formed to inspire and educate people from all ages and walks of life about the ways that space technology can help save our planet. We educate through story telling content, curated experiences, events, and educational partnerships.
Our goal is to work with a diverse group of organizations who are committed to solving the United Nation's SDG's, promote sustainability, and raise awareness about the ways space tech can be and already is being used for good. We also curate experiences with astronauts to give people a chance to experience the awe of our planet up close with those who have a unique perspective of seeing Earth from space.

AIM HIGHER ROMANIA 2023
Spacefest and SPACE DAY ROMANIA were a success!
On June 11, 2023 we held our first ever SPACE DAY ROMANIA event launching Spacefest for the first time in Bucharest, Romania at Politehnica University Bucharest.
Over 15,000 people showed up and it was very clear that there is a lot of interest in space.
NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott, Citizen Astronaut Sara Sabry and Romanian Cosmonaut Dumitru-Dorin Prunariu dazzled the crowds with their stories of going to space. And inspired a whole new generation about the value of going to space.

Curated Adventures with Astronauts - all over Planet Earth
Did you know there is really only one ocean? Even though we name regions of the ocean depending on location in the world. Glaciers provide the clean water that is vital to the health of our planet. Seeing it up close is humbling and awe inspiring. It's a special experience that for many is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Through SPACE for a Better World, Purpose Entertainment and Wanderlux we offer once in a lifetime experiences with astronauts as the guides. Getting to hear firsthand stories from their time in space and a truly unique perspective of looking back at Earth makes trips like this even more special.
Join us on the next astronaut adventures to Antarctica. Learn more at firstname.lastname@example.org.

THE PLACE I SAW FROM SPACE Ep1 - Maldives
Many people ask,
Why are we spending money on going to space? We need to save this planet.
But who conducts climate research and provides the data to take better care of Earth?
It’s the space community.
- Satellite communication
- Energy infrastructure monitoring
- Resource and land management
- New energy exploration and sustainability
- And much more…
- Weather prediction
- Natural disaster monitoring
- Climate change research
- Conservation monitoring
- Global positioning (GPS)
Many of the satellites launched into orbit are put there to conduct critical research that help us monitor conditions on the ground to make life better for everyone on Earth. Satellites also provide technology and capabilities we depend on every day.
