16th Space Generation Congress

Adelaide, Australia

 September 21 - 23, 2017

The Space Generation Congress (SGC) is the annual meeting of the Space Generation Advisory Council held in conjunction with the International Astronautical Congress. Participants are top university students and young professionals with a passion for space who are selected from among applicants from our Space Generation international network.

Space Generation Congress Goals

The Space Generation Congress (SGC) is SGAC’s annual meeting in support of the United Nations (UN) Programme on Space Applications. Top university students and young professionals with a passion for space will travel from all around the globe to attend three days of the 16th SGC. The 130 delegates will enjoy an inspiring and resourceful engagement with their peers at the congress, held in Adelaide, Australia on 21 - 23 September, 2017 prior to the 68th International Astronautical Congress (IAC).

Delegates will gain exposure to perspectives on space issues from the world’s leading space organisations, including: the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS).

In demonstrating the symbiotic relationship, leaders from these space organisations gained fresh, innovative and bold perspectives from the incoming space generation. Several sponsors along with a committee of volunteers are supporting the preparation of the 16th SGC. Without  the support of SGAC's dedicated volunteers and the continual support of our partners and sponsors, the 16th SGC would not be possible.
