Lunar Development Conference 2024

Moon Society’s Lunar Development Conference 2024

An International Moon Day event brought to you by ISRUtech Sweden AB

Saturday July 20 and Sunday July 21

The 2024 Lunar Development Conference (LDC2024) will bring together speakers from science, business, space policy, advocacy, and academia who will present their research and ideas for the human future of Luna. This years conference is a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Artemis Society International. Artemis Society International was the precursor of the Moon Society and an early initiative for resuming Human presence on the moon with the eventual goal of permanent settlement.
Inevatibly, we will spend some time looking back at what plans were then and how they have developed since. Also unavoidable, we will be looking ahead on what will or might happen in the future and how the settlement of the moon, the solar system and beyond will evolve. But as exciting as both looking back on past glories and looking forward towards future opportunities are, the key aim of this years conference is to take stock and look at what can we do next. Two days packed with insights on the history and future of Lunar Development!

This event is part of the Moon Society tradition of successful annual Lunar Development Conferences which have brought together hundreds of attendees and scores of speakers including CEOs, professors, business professionals, legal and policy experts, and a wide range of ideas and opinions. All sessions from from earlier LDCs, from 2020 and onwards, are available for on-demand viewing on the Moon Society YouTube channel.

The 2024 Lunar Development Conference is organised by ISRUtech Sweden AB at Moonbase Lappträsk.
