Join us on Wednesday 3 June for a live streamed conversation  with European experts on how space can help with post-millennials’ education and social lives.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge effect on schoolchildren across Europe. Schools have switched to online and distance teaching following the lockdown imposed by many countries to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Guests will discuss how national education systems  have responded to online schooling, access to communications tools for students, the importance of the social component in the learning process and how space can help support education systems.

Post-millennials’ education and social lives will take place at 17:00 CEST on 3 June. Watch live on ESA Web TV: https://esawebtv.esa.int/

Guests include:

  • Frank Santeugini, a secondary school pupil at the West London Free School
  • Anna Uronen, a primary school teacher in the Finnish education system
  • Jan Wörner, ESA Director General
  • Vasilis Zervos, associate professor in space economics and policy at the International Space University, Strasbourg

The discussion will be moderated by Donatella Ponziani, Downstream Gateway Officer at ESA.
