How can space technology help build peace in Ukraine and the world?

28 July 2022

Join the fourth PeaceTech Talk to discuss how space technology can become a key factor for global peace and security, rather than a source of conflict

The conflict in Ukraine represents the first conventional war in which disruptive technologies and digital platforms play a key role. In this series of four online talks, we propose to discuss the various ways in which digital technologies and tech platforms can contribute to fostering peace, creating new bridges between citizens around Europe and the world.The fourth PeaceTech Talk will focus on the role of space technologies in contributing to peace and humanitarian emergency response in Ukraine. This includes the use of satellite imagery and data to support humanitarian efforts, taking care of refugees and displaced people, facilitating medical supply, favoring global transparency and accountability, ensuring connectivity and information sharing. These opportunities are matched by challenges and threats of misuse and potential conflict in space that call for new norms, rules, and principles of responsibility and sustainability to ensure the effective use of space technology for peaceful purposes.
