With the backing of Thomas Pesquet, the French astronaut working with the European Space Agency (ESA), Aviation Sans Frontières and the ESA are giving voice to actions of solidarity.
ESA’s French astronaut, Thomas Pesquet, has decided to commit to the NGO Aviation Sans Frontières by supporting its activities and participating in a communication campaign promoting solidarity actions.
The campaign, conceived and managed by the BRIGHTLY consulting office, aims to give voice to solidarity actors to promote their actions while raising awareness of the general public to the new challenges of mutual aid.
All the evidence shows that solidarity can come in different forms and that it is potentially accessible to all.
The campaign is officially launched with the announcement of the sponsorship of Thomas Pesquet and will continue over time through different devices to include all those who wish to promote the values of solidarity.
Discover Aviation Sans Frontières
Since 1980, Aviation Sans Frontières has placed the resources and skills of the aviation world at the service of humanitarian actions, either through the missions that it carries by mobilising the aviation network, operations conducted using its own fleet or actions implemented in collaboration with flying clubs in France. Aviation Sans Frontières is the only French aviation NGO.
It has been recognised as a public utility and provides crucial logistics support to thousands of humanitarian players by ensuring the transportation of emergency aid and persons worldwide. Thanks to the 800 volunteers who work for it, each day, Aviation Sans Frontières responds to dozens of humanitarian requests.

The European Space Agency (ESA)
ESA is Europe’s gateway to space. ESA is an intergovernmental organization created in 1975, whose mission is to work towards the development of Europe’s space capabilities by ensuring that investments in the space sector benefit European citizens as well as citizens worldwide.
ESA has twenty-two Member States: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Spain, Ireland and the United Kingdom. Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Romania, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland. Twenty of them are Member States of the European Union.
ESA formally cooperates with seven other EU Member States. Canada also participates in some ESA programs under a cooperation agreement.
By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, ESA can undertake programs and activities that go far beyond what each individual country could achieve. In particular, it cooperates with the EU in the implementation of the Galileo and Copernicus programs.
ESA develops launchers, satellites and ground assets that enable Europe to play a leading role in the global space scene.
Today, ESA develops and places Earth observation, navigation, telecommunication and astronomy satellites in orbit, sends probes to the confines of the Solar System and participates in human space exploration.
The European Space Agency (ESA) and ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet do not receive financial compensation for this sponsorship.
