Space for Humanity is a nonprofit organization founded to create a positive social impact on the world. We begin by enabling global citizens from all backgrounds to become astronauts - Citizen Astronauts - offering the opportunity to experience the cognitive shift in worldview that occurs when seeing the Earth from space.
Each of our citizen astronauts maintain a commitment to creating positive social impact in their communities. We can’t send everyone to space - however, we can create ripple effects using these spaceflights. If you’re not clear on what you would create as of now - don’t worry. If selected, Space for Humanity will train and support you in developing these ventures.
After training and developing of your social impact initiative, you will go to space. The date of this is dependent on the technology of spaceflight providers. We are working towards 2021 for our first launch.
Upon returning from suborbital spaceflight, you will have one (1) year to launch your social impact venture, as a Space for Humanity Ambassador. Our theory of change is guided by the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDGs) - a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. The UN-SDGs include 17 urgent global challenges. At Space for Humanity, we believe partnering our social impact with these pressing challenges is essential in maximizing our impact. And what better way to do that than with the spaceflight perspective!
Thanks for applying. We are excited to learn more about you.
Other things you may want to consider for the video are as follows:
How will you inspire others with your spaceflight story?

How would you want to make a difference in your community when you return from space?
These ideas can be broad and conceptual — don’t sweat the details! The point at this stage is simply to share your passion.
