WoMars organizes all-female space analogue missions and trainings in Europe and overseas to offer young women hands-on experience in the field of space exploration while collecting data on women in space-like environments that is currently lacking.
WoMars is also a Geneva-based non-profit organization dedicated to promote and support diversity in space exploration. Through outreach initiaves, we aim to encourage younger generations to think the future of space exploration in a more diverse, inclusive, and sustainable way.
