SGAC is proud to present September 2023 Member of the Month!

SGAC is delighted to recognize members who are committed to its development; those who show hard labour and total dedication to the mission and purpose of the organisation. For Sept 2023, we are pleased to announce and congratulate the Space Generation Congress 2023 Organizing Team!

Meet the Space Generation Congress 2023 Organizing Team!

This group of talented SGAC members worked tirelessly to prepare and organize the Space Generation Advisory Council’s flagship event. The team hosted the Space Generation Congress (SGC) in the last week of September in Baku, Azerbaijan. At the event, they received 125 delegates from more than 50 Countries and flawlessly executed all activities planned for this three-day event. The SGC2023 Organizing Team comprised 23 volunteers representing 16 different countries. Over the organizational phase and event, they did a marvelous job showcasing the incredible work that SGAC members can do and the great things that can be achieved through hard work and collaboration in the spirit of the organization. 

The Space Generation Congress 2023 Organizing Team role as part of SGAC’s Global Community:

Global events significantly influence the role and impact of SGAC within the space community. These events provide many opportunities for SGAC members to gain experience and voice their opinions on recent matters in the sector, which SGAC later showcases to the UN and its partners. Proper execution of these events is crucial for SGAC to maintain its relationships with existing partners and to establish new partnerships. Therefore, every year, the Space Generation Congress Organizing Team has the enormous responsibility of organizing the largest annual global event that SGAC hosts, working with some of SGAC’s most relevant partners and stakeholders, and providing an incredible service to all the delegates and guests throughout the event.

Would you like to share with us a special quote you feel guided by, or how would you motivate others to stay focused on their goals?

The SGC23 event’s theme was “Building a space community to inspire, connect, and support humankind.” This quote represents and aligns with the message the team wanted to convey to all attendees of the event. We hope that all SGAC members can relate to this message. At SGAC, we are dedicated to building the next generation of space professionals and supporting them in their journey to reach for the stars. There is no bigger motivation than knowing that what you do is helping someone get closer to where they want to be and who they want to become.
