Young Space Activities Overview in Germany

In 2020, the first national SGAC event in Germany is taking place in Munich. Originally scheduled for the 14th of March, it hat to be postponed due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The event is now scheduled for the 14th of November. It focuses on the role of Germany in the international space sector by 2030, and preparing and transforming the German space ecosystem by 2030. You can find all information about SG Germany on the dedicated event page. We envision this to become an annual event in different cities and invite you to reach out to the NpoCs for more information!

On a more regular and local basis, SGAC is represented at several significant events and institutions, with formal connections to German industry, the public sector, as well as international actors such as the United Nations in Bonn. Furthermore, SGAC members organised informal gatherings in different cities to connect with other members and like-minded peers. These gatherings are usually organised in an informal way via messenger groups. If you are interested to join such an event or to organise a gathering in your place, simply reach out to the NPoCs, who will provide you with further information.
