The Spacers concept includes probing the future, the past, through sciences, arts and knowledge, understanding the Universe, life and humanity as values that must be protected.
SPACERS events train the public in the direction of diversification and absorption of musical values, arts, reading, knowledge about our local history.
We want to spread out into outer space. Technology will push us in that direction. But we must carry the messages of peace, of responsible and sustainable exploitation of resources, of preserving terrestrial biodiversity and protecting the ecosystems of the planets that we will colonize.
