The Citizens’ Debate on Space for Europe is a unique – indeed the first instance of a – consultation organized in every member state of the European Space Agency. Over 2000 citizens selected to reflect the socio-demographic diversity of their country will debate on space matters during a day-long meeting. In order to consolidate the 22 national results reports into one European report, all debates will follow the same instructions and answer the same set of questions.
This consultation on unprecedented scale is organised by Missions Publiques, a company specialised in citizen participation, with 20 partners, on behalf of ESA. ESA intends to take in new actors to develop its future orientation and nurture its strategy. It is crucial to the Agency to involve more actors, especially citizens, in choices that will respond to societal challenges, put space at their service and impact coming generations through space innovation, exploration and international space cooperation.

The debate in Poland will take place on 10 September in Rzeszów.

Registration will be closed on 28 August 2016 at midnight
