Whitepaper #289 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: space weather applications; infrastructure/workforce/other programmatic. Additional topics: other programmatic; other space weather.
Space weather affects all space systems, both natural and artificial. A rapid growth of awareness and a critical need for space weather prediction requires building space weather literacy within K-14 classrooms. This white paper group recommends an annual celebration of space weather week, covering various topics in heliophysics through sustained engagement beyond celestial and spacecraft events.
