“to positively impact the planet by changing people’s mindsets”

When Wubbo returned from his space lab in 1985, he wondered how he could best share his experience. His key message was not that space is unique, but rather Earth.

Nowhere in space can we see a planet on which we humans could live. Earth is our home and it’s our spaceship that protects us from the dangers of space. Whoever realizes that, experiences how dependent we are on this one of a kind planet…

We have only one, there is no spare. So Let’s take care!

Love Earth!

Ambition 2020 – ambassador movement

A personal note from Anna Gimbrère, first “Astronaut of Spaceship Earth”

Astronaut Wubbo Ockels, who also was my professor, developed his own concept of time. He said: “Time is a creation of life in response to gravity”. A mindboggling theory we can hopefully put to test someday. Either way, time is precious, for all of us. And so is our planet. It’s time to care and act now.

It is a privilege to be part of keeping his legacy alive through the Happy Energy foundation.

With lots of Happy Energy,

Anna Gimbrère
