The 5th edition of the NCAC Space Generation Workshop will take place in Halifax, Canada at the Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law. This year’s theme is: Responsible Commercialization: How to develop a resilient and sustainable space sector for all.

Taking place all day on July 13 and 14, our annual workshop provides delegates the opportunity to formulate solutions to contemporary space challenges like sustainability, cooperation, and inclusion. Attendees are organized into one of three Tracks that focus on a particular space domain – orbits, launches, or exploration. Each track will meet over four sessions to hear insights from industry experts and work together to formulate solutions to current space policy challenges. The results of the Working Groups will be compiled into a Report, which will be distributed through SGAC’s channels and may inform SGAC’s presentation at the annual meeting of UNCOPUOS.




New this year is a Lightning format, which focuses on providing opportunities for 15 to 20 minute presentations by industry experts. Working Group sessions are reimagined as fast-paced discussions, where bold ideas are encouraged.

About the Event

Our workshop is part of SGAC’s annual events that aims to bring together regional space leaders to discuss topics of relevance to the respective region, in this case North, Central America and the Caribbean (NCAC).

Since the first regional event, or Space Generation Workshop in 2014, SGAC has been able to attract a larger member audience excited to bring an ‘international’ gathering to their region with participants that are interested in discussing local space activities and may not be able to attend SGAC events in other parts of the globe. This movement allows the participants to meet similar minded space enthusiasts from their region, and spin a cultural flavor. 

Even though our event is focused on the NCAC region, everyone from around the globe is invited to join our working groups and add their ideas to our discussions.

As a delegate, you will have the amazing opportunity to develop leadership skills in a growing industry by directly networking with the main actors, decision makers, market developers and young space leaders. You will join the most important youth space community where YOU HAVE THE POWER to actively participate in decision making and influence the direction of policies and space initiatives. You can positively impact the way things work in the present. This role enables you to represent the causes and issues that hold personal significance and pave the way for mindfull transformations.
