Why should you attend?

With this conference we want to bring together the space outreach and communication community to learn from and support each other in communicating space to a diverse set of audiences.

From masterclasses on effectively using social media, to learning more about how space communication works in different countries and hearing best practices on how to shape our messages, #Impulse2021 is there to help space communicators, like you, perform better!

Topics we will cover:
