Almost two decades ago, the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) was born out of the recommendations of the Space Generation Forum at UNISPACE III in 1999. Since then, SGAC has grown into a global organisation that represents the voice of the youth with 13,000 members in the six United Nations regions and more than 150 countries around the world.

Join us in Vienna on 16th -17th June 2018 to celebrate SGAC at the Space Generation Forum 2.0!
