About the Webinar

KPMG’s 30 Voices on 2030: The Future of Space brings together the different perspectives of 30 senior leaders from the space industry around the world – heads of agency, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs and politicians – who paint a very vivid, exciting and challenging vision of what we can expect.

Join AmCham and KPMG on a limited 5-part series exploring what Space in 2030 may look like. We explore the potential of space to open up to new businesses and customers, create new products and services and speak to our sense of curiosity and desire to understand the world beyond our planet. Organisations across different industries – and not just traditional space industry players - that lack adaptability and imagination will be left behind.

Businesses are already putting sustainability at the forefront of what they do on Earth and in the years ahead the same will be applied to our activities in space. Join us in this webinar to where we’ll explore issues ranging from space debris, the potential risks of opening up space travel and exploration, and the militarisation of space.
