On the 16th of April a EuroMoonMars workshop was held at KABK INSIDE Master Interior Architecture space to gather actors from various backgrounds to explore the topic of the MoonVillage. The workshop was split into three main activities: Talks related to the MoonVillage, splinter work groups on three chosen subjects and a wrap up moon dinner with talks on specific issues linked to the MoonVillage and a Moon base design. After the Kabk workshop there was the opportunity to participate with results in the EuroMoonMars/MoonVillage simulation/workshop at Estec on the 19th and 20th of April.
