Hello and good day fellow Asgardians, as part of Asgardia’s Parliamentary Elections in electoral district #1 (English), allow me to share my dreams and goals with you at this exciting time in human history.

Campaign Statement

I seek to contribute to Asgardia Space Kingdom in a leadership position within the Parliament of Asgardia. Since joining in June, I have been an active member within the community and have contributed my time and energy to spread the ideas of Asgardia and do research. If elected, I will work with the other members of Parliament and bring the skills I have acquired from my work and studies outside Asgardia. I have created and was, the administrator for my own group on the Steam video-gaming platform and have core knowledge in international politics with specialised knowledge in innovation. I have a skillset for nurturing relationships with others to collaborate on projects and issues. My interests and skillset in innovation, communication, politics, design and business allows me to work with others on social, economic and political issues that may affect Asgardia. If elected, I plan to use my skills, and experience as a leader to best meet the needs of Asgardian citizens and advance our developments to pursue Asgardia’s national goals of “[ensuring] the peaceful use of space… [protecting] the planet Earth from space threats… [and] [creating] a demilitarized and free scientific base of knowledge in space.” As well as to pursue my vision of making Earth a residential planet and making humanity a free, space-faring and multi-planetary species.

Who am I?

My name is Steven Wang and I am a 19-year-old Innovation and Design student at Melbourne’s Swinburne University of Technology, one of the top design universities in the world (Rank 32, 2016).

I am studying Innovation and Design and researching ways to help humanity reach the stars. My Bachelor’s course also includes elective subjects on International Politics, Business Law and Business Information Systems. My interests span from video games to space innovation and politics.

Vision for Humanity’s Future

We are living in the most exciting and dangerous times of human history - the on-going threat of environmental degradation, poverty and conflict affecting our planet is irrational and changes must be made. Our technologies to reach space must also be utilised and developed to allow us to live in space. We need innovative solutions now more than ever before, to solve these problems and secure humanity’s future.

It is my belief that Asgardia Space Kingdom can achieve its goals while helping our planet become more prosperous for the next generations of humanity. Which is why I seek a place in Parliament to make sure that as a nation we are progressing in the right direction and that our actions do not lead to greater deterioration of our planet along the way. We can make our Space Nation and space living a reality for all of humanity, the systems must be in place first to allow us to take the next steps, I seek to help implement these systems so that we can build our space nation together as one humanity.

My ultimate vision is to see Earth become a residential planet free from heavy industry and pollution. The first step to take is to bring industry to outer space and then move the polluting factories and power plants into space or nullified to prevent further damage here on Earth. This will allow humanity to focus on exploring the Solar System and becoming a multi-planetary species.
