“Connecting the Space Curious to the Space Serious”
With Christina Korp
Founder of Space For a Better World
President of Purpose Entertainment
Space makes life better on Earth! A powerful statement that likely elicits debate on both sides. Christina Korp, through her work has made it her mission to prove its validity. As she describes it, “Connecting the Space Curious to the Space Serious” is about educating through storytelling content, curated experiences, events, and educational partnerships. Using the awe and wonder of space exploration, she is working to inspire and educate people from all ages and walks of life about the ways that space technology can help save our planet.
Understanding the challenges of creating an awareness of the impact of space, Christina formed Space for a Better World in 2020. The goal is to work with a diverse group of organizations who are committed to solving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to promote sustainability, and raise awareness about the ways space tech can be and already is being used for good.
An important aspect of this program is to 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. A strong emphasis is also attracting and inspiring young people through STEAM and STEM activations. In this space forum, Christina will provide an engaging summary of the activities and programs she has developed to educate, inspire and demonstrate why “Space makes life better on Earth!” Don’t miss this space forum to gain an added perspective on space exploration, development and settlement.
