The 18th Sustainable Development Goal, SDG, is about space, about respect, and exploration across the many layers of space. Advocating for an 18th SDG for outer space expansion is inherently a sustainability led decision.

The 18th SDG: Respect, Nurture, and Explore Space

The 18th SDG is about conceptualising an effective goal. Our footprint in space – from subatomic to interstellar space and every layer in between and beyond – is ours to design, create, improve, and expand.

The carbon in our air, the plastic in our oceans, the sewage in our rivers, the radioactive waste on land and at sea, the chemical landfills, and the debris in orbit, they are all evidence of the necessity to reinvent human productivity in order to secure both its sustainability as well as continuous expansion across time and space.

The 18th SDG recognises the vast and diverse spatial context we occupy – from subatomic to interstellar space and every layer in between and beyond – and establishes the necessity to respect, nurture, and explore our own evolutionary continuity in space, across its many layers. It also establishes the necessity to respect and nurture and explore all other life forms we encounter on our journey in space.

Respect, Nurture, and Explore Space.

Respect, Nurture, and Explore Space

Space is our physical context stretching from subatomic to interstellar space and every layer in between and beyond.
