Interested in Outer Space? 

Thinking of getting into the Space Industry?


Join this on-line & live event to hear eminent

speakers & experts in their field talk about the 'New Space' industry in the context of giving the Moon 'Legal Personhood' as we do to landscapes on Earth. What would it mean to the space industry if the Moon was a stakeholder in the decision making process? How would we mine the moon? How would nature have a voice?


Five experts will set the scene, then hold a public discussion followed by breakout 

sessions. Join in on-line to add your 

voice to the lunar dialogue.

The Moon Village Association (MVA) has been recently created as non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Vienna. Its goal is the creation of a permanent global informal forum for stakeholders like governments, industry, academia and the public interested in the development of the Moon Village. The MVA fosters cooperation for existing or planned global moon exploration programs, be they public or private initiatives. It comprises approximately 220 members from more than 39 countries and 25 Institutional members around the globe, representing a diverse array of technical, scientific, cultural and interdisciplinary fields.

MVA partners with non-space organizations to promote international discussions and formulation of plans to foster the implementation of the Moon Village and is creating international, national and regional networks to engage civil society around the world
