SG[ASEAN] and the SGAC
Following the successes of previous SGAC SG[country] events and the Asia-Pacific Space Generation Workshop series, the SG[ASEAN] aims to continue empowering the next generation of youth involved and interested in space, and become a platform for regional collaboration. Asia-Pacific being the largest region for space growth, there is a need to continue building a community of practice in the region to capitalize upon opportunities. Space activities have been growing in Asia-Pacific with Thailand being an emerging regional leader in space technology. This upcoming event would provide a platform for the students and young professionals to directly engage with today’s industry leaders and exchange ideas on salient issues in the regional and Thai space industry.
- To strengthen the network of the students and young professionals in the ASEAN region;
- To allow tomorrow’s leaders to have the opportunity to interact with today’s space leaders and professionals in the region through the cooperation; and
- To enhance the understanding of the space sector for young professionals in Thailand and relevant partner countries, with the goal of providing 4 concrete set of recommendations to be delivered to the relevant stakeholders.
