Space and the future of human­ity

quote Orbit­ing the Earth in the space­ship, I saw how beau­ti­ful our planet is. Peo­ple, let us pre­serve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!”, YURI GAGARIN

The Youth Time move­ment believes in the cre­ation of a pos­i­tive image of the future and its imple­men­ta­tion. In the first instance, future is a time scale in our lives, but it’s also very closely linked to the spa­tial dimen­sion. By encour­ag­ing young peo­ple to expand their under­stand­ing of the world and of its dynam­ics, we will real­ize that we need knowl­edge not only for our daily life, but also to have an overview of the processes occur­ring on a plan­e­tary scale.

Space explo­ration began 50 years ago, on April 12th, 1961, when Yuri Gagarin went on the the first space explo­ration mis­sion, aboard the space­craft Vostok-​1, and became the first man to see our planet from the outer space. Today, the world glob­al­iza­tion is a pop­u­lar topic of dis­cus­sions, but when look­ing from space, it’s very easy to under­stand the sim­ple fact that our planet is, in its nature, a whole and a sin­gle organ­ism fol­low­ing cos­mic laws of day and night, win­ter and sum­mer. Each stu­dent is famil­iar with the phe­nom­e­non called the water cycle. There­fore, the link between the fate of men and our sur­round­ing envi­ron­ment becomes extremely apparent.

By orga­niz­ing the Inter­na­tional Com­pe­ti­tion of the con­cept: “Space and the future of mankind”, we have sought, to con­sciously approach the pos­si­ble future of human­ity and, for that pur­posed, we pro­posed to young peo­ple to express their vision of the future trans­porta­tion, habi­tat and cloth­ing as well as of the over­all orga­ni­za­tion of the “new soci­ety”, in a visual or a writ­ten form. In our opin­ion, the com­pe­ti­tion was a great suc­cess. In total, we received more than 400 papers on the topic, of which, we selected the top 50 authors, rep­re­sent­ing a group of 14 countries.
