Season 2, episode 23.
8 Dec 2021

We revisit a live panel talk from the Swedish pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai, which was part of our activities during space week earlier this fall. The panel discusses how space can act as an accelerant for good on earth — specifically in fighting poaching. Panel members are Professor Jan Staël von Holstein, Herman Stander, Peace Parks Foundation, Cecilia Hertz, Umbilical Design, and Tina Sjögren, CEO Pythomspace.

The panel talk touches upon:

How to stop poaching from a birds eyes view.  Using satellites to increase connectivity in isolated African societies. 

How the massive deforestation issue can be tracked from above to see who’s the culprit.

Where does the demand for ivory and rhino horns come from? 

How all sales of illegal horns became illegal in China.
