What is Mission 2030?

Mission 2030 is an International Youth Climate Summit produced by This Spaceship Earth.


We kicked off this initiative with a global summit on May 3rd, 2021 designed for young people to learn about our climate crisis, to participate by sharing their climate thoughts and actions, and to enable youth around the world to meet and get to know their peers.


This Spaceship Earth’s mission is to develop a critical mass of crew members on Spaceship Earth. That is, people who understand that we must come together and evolve from being passive passengers on Spaceship Earth in order to avoid climate catastrophe. 2030 is our global deadline for avoiding the worst effects of our climate crisis.


Our 2021 Summit was a rousing success with a dozen youth presenters from different countries around Spaceship Earth, and hundreds of student and teacher attendees both during the live event and after the fact. We will be presenting another global summit in May of 2022, and will produce a summit each year, along with other events, through 2030. 

The Challenge

The Challenge of Mission 2030 is to bring hands-on, project-based environmental learning into the classrooms of schools around the world, starting in 2021.

While students at any level of education can benefit from such consciousness-changing curricula, we want the focus to be 7th-12th grade levels. We challenge teachers, curriculum developers, principals, and school board members to develop such courses. The climate crisis will be a major factor in the lives of all children for the rest of their lives. Our mission is to be a catalyst for students, parents and teachers to become crew members of This Spaceship Earth. It is time for all of us to become astronauts by crewing the only planet that humanity has. This entire century will be the Earth Century.
