In 1999, at UNISPACE III, the Space Generation Advisory Council was created. At this time the Space Generation Forum was held and it was recommended “to create, within the framework of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, a consultative mechanism to facilitate the continued participation of young people from all over the world, especially young people from developing countries and young women, in cooperative space-related activities”. SGAC celebrated this historic event by hosting the second Space Generation Forum, known as Space Generation Forum 2.0, in the form of a pre-twentieth anniversary event.

The SGF2.0 team was nominated by Lauren Napier (SGF2.0 Manager):

“My team has been a wonderful group of people. They are all working or studying but have taken so much time out of their week each week to make sure the event is the best it can be! I am so proud of all that they have accomplished and how they have worked together. They are all professional, organized, insightful people that really have a passion for SGAC, space and UNISPACE+50! ”

From the SGAC Executive Director, Clémentine:

“The SGF2.0 team has done a wonderful job for this very special event. They managed to bring together the different SGAC Generations to celebrate the creation of SGAC at UNISPACE III and invite the delegates to think about what is next for SGAC and how the next generation can contribute to the elaboration of the Space 2030 agenda. This event was definitely a milestone in the history of SGAC!”
