Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Developed by Canadian young professionals and students, the titular theme of the UN Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) “Canada’s Space Generation is Moonbound” will explore a fusion of thematic areas representative of today’s space industry and its plurality. It has been prominently developed to provide insights into the growing panoramic view of Canada’s modern space sector including its makeup – an evolving genetic identity highlighting the significance of inclusion and diversity, intermixed with diversity of ideas blending technical and non-technical domains. A major highlight is accessibility to space opportunities for the Canadian youth and international outlook for space exploration through sustainable partnerships. At its heart, the core of the session reflects on Canada's heritage in space and its future: the space generation terra firma ripe of collaborative opportunities, leveraging imagination as a pivot to exploration and innovation.

The outputs generated from the session will be consolidated into a report by SGAC. They will be redirected to key stakeholders, including the Canadian Space Agency Canada's Space Advisory Board, as well as internationally to UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS), among others.
