The Global Science Opera (GSO) is a legacy of the United Nations-sanctioned International Year of Light 2015. GSO began as a collaboration between several international projects, institutions and volunteer networks: The European Commission’s CREAT-IT project, Global Hands on Universe (GHOU), the Galileo Teacher Training Programme (GTTP), and the European Economic Area’s Write a Science Opera (WASO) project.
In 2017, the GSO will produce the opera “Moon Village”. The science opera will be performed around the world and streamed online: A year-long creative inquiry shared by schools, universities and art institutions around the planet, in 25 countries. It will communicate the process, science and technology of the European Space Agency’s Moon Village. “Moon Village” will be a cooperation with a network of institutions and international education projects.
