SGAC recently released a report titled “Saving Our Future on Earth Through Our Presence in Space,” which details SGAC’s policy position on the role of space in climate action.

To support this effort, we are hosting a webinar on climate change, environment, and space. Speakers will discuss their work in using space applications in climate monitoring and research and the intersection of space and sustainability. During the webinar, panelists will share their ideas and expertise on environmental issues, and engage with our audience through a Q&A session.
