Host: Jesco von Puttkamer Society
Keynote speaker: Ralf Heckel

20 years ago the new director of the ISS (International Space Station), Prof. Dr. Jesco von Puttkamer (NASA-HQ), and the current director of the ISEI (International Space Education Institute), Ralf Heckel (Germany, active role during the fall of the iron curtain), started an amazing project: The accessibility of Space Education and International contests for everyone on the planet.

The main goal 10 years after the cold war was: "Multi-nationality: learn, design, work and live together, create a future - like on board the International Space Station and beyond".

This goal was never lost. Both opened the doors for many international teams at national US, German and Russian space competitions. This work is financially and politically independent, non-profit and non-government. It continues to grow with more locations, more activities and into more countries worldwide.

The Space Education Readings Tour Program 2019 collects all multinational experiences from the past until the 50th year of landing on the Moon and gives a look into the future of the next decade. What Prof. Dr. von Puttkamer (Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle and ISS) called "anti-cyclic", will be present as a VISION for a way of life for everyone who wants to make a future between 2020 and 2030.

This reading also involves the current global development such as: Climate Change, Pollution, Populism or Fridays for Future and gives visions for a new orientation with Space as a smart and possible solution.
