The initiatives aim to create awareness and instil space culture in the youth.
The Egyptian Space Agency (EgSA) hosted several artists as part of its outreach initiatives to spread space culture to the society, including Egypt Asteroid and Spaceak programmes, in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
Dr Mohamed El-Koosy, CEO of EgSA, held a meeting with the artists, including Bahir Al-Nawhi, Ahmed Wali, Heba El-Desouki, and Ahmed Jamal Saeed, to commend them for their unwavering support of spreading space culture to the society through their artistic contributions.
He praised the artistic work of these artists for spreading awareness and addressing social issues in society, as well as recognising them as ambassadors for the cultural campaigns launched by the agency. Furthermore, the artists were honoured in the presence of Dr Youssef Shaaban Al-Musharraf, the marketing and media coordinator of the agency and the supervisor of the Asteroid Egypt initiative.
To achieve its plans to elevate the skills and capabilities of the youth in space science, EgSA seeks to sensitise youths in all cities and governorates of the Republic on the importance of having active participation in space activities. Among the most critical of these challenges is dealing with climate change.
In addition, Dr El-Koosy emphasised that the participation of artists and civil society in the awareness and spreading space culture gives weight to reviving the agencys initiatives because there is a convergence in understanding the behaviour of these generations and how to speed up the adoption of the initiatives message.
The Egyptian Space Agency aims to achieve common interests in space and sustainable development by sensitising citizens to look forward to future involvement in all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.
