Beyond Earth Symposium 2024 At the Crossroads committing to a Thriving Future for Humanity in Space November 12-13, 2024 American University Washington College of Law Washington, DC

The acceleration of space innovations that will enable space migration is outpacing public policy and international law regimes. Beyond Earth Institute’s mission is to create a policy and legal framework to support the robust development of an in-space economy and the expansion of human civilization beyond Earth.

At the Beyond Earth Symposium 2024, we will wrestle with the critical current issues of the day and delve into the bleeding edge issues that must be moved to the center of international debate. What we do in a post-ISS era is an urgent, immediate concern. Policies that can foster the creation of a lunar-based economy are equally important.

Let’s be bold together! Join stakeholders from across the industry, government, and international sector for this third annual Beyond Earth Symposium. Momentum is building to transform policy and legal landscape to enable a space migration future. Dare to be part of this work.
