Earth-Space Sustainability (ess)

ess is a non-profit research initiative that uses social science methods to tackle the increasing dual-challenge of outer-space sustainability and of using space for sustainable development on Earth. In so doing, ESSG seeks to establish an Earth-Space paradigm among all groups of society today. ESSG derives strategic policy insights concerning space governance, space security, and space economy, all of which contribute to a sustainable Earth-Space relationship.
