IPS Position Statement:
International Collaboration and Science Communication

The International Planetarium Society (IPS) is the global association of planetarium professionals. We seek to enhance the world’s appreciation and understanding of our Universe through the innovation and cooperation among planetariums. The IPS’s members come from all over the world including areas of political unrest, wars, as well as certain restrictions on visas and immigration.

The IPS strongly believes in the importance of international collaboration and cooperation. The ability for members to travel to the meetings and workshops that our organization holds is key towards achieving our goal of inspiring people with the beauty and grandeur of our universe. The IPS would also like to stress the importance of the free flow of ideas and the important role that planetariums play in helping scientists communicate their findings to the public.

Even at seemingly divisive and unsettled times, the planetarium experience can help remind us of what connects us -- we all look up in wonder at the same starry sky.
