On the 10th of May 2021, SGAC has officially approved and adopted the following three documents from the EAGLE Team: a Lunar Governance Report, an Executive Summary and a Lunar Manifesto.
The Report discusses the current status of the lunar policy landscape and presents EAGLE’s proposal for its way forward: the global development of a Lunar Governance Charter. The purpose of this instrument would be to operationalise the fundamental principles of international space law and enable the incremental development of new ones. The Executive Summary outlines the key elements of the Report, while the Manifesto provides a visual representation of its essential points.
We invite all individuals interested in supporting the ideas of the EAGLE Team to become EAGLE Advocates and join a vibrant, global movement in support of the peaceful and sustainable development of the Moon. The names of EAGLE advocates will be acknowledged in a public list annexed to the Report and will always accompany its official submissions, beginning with the one at United Nations in June 2021.
This is our call to action.
SGAC will present the EAGLE Report at the next meetings of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS) and call States to action for the development of a Lunar Governance Charter. Through a Lunar Charter we can clarify misunderstandings on new concepts like safety zones and consolidate consensus on the application of fundamental principles like due regard. A Lunar Governance Charter will help us move forward on our journey to the Moon from solid foundations while also providing guidance for the development of new ones.
All the individuals interested in supporting our call to action are invited to join our global movement of EAGLE Advocates. At this stage, you can support us by signing a public list that will be annexed to our Report and presented at the United Nations. We are extremely grateful for the wonderful support of our EAGLE Advocates and look forward to cooperating with all of you for the peaceful and sustainable development of the Moon!
Take a stand on lunar governance, become an EAGLE Advocate!
