World Space Week is a United Nations-endorsed event observed every year from 4 to 10 of October all around the globe. Since 2019, New Zealand Astrobiology Network is the National Coordinator of the World Space Week in New Zealand. We inform and educate about the benefits we receive from space, encourage greater use of space for sustainable development and excite young people about science, technology, engineering and math. We also aim to connect people who are interested in space with those who are actively engaged in it.
