Following the success of the three past South American Space Generation Workshop (SA-SGW) in the last years, the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) in support of the United Nations Programme on Space Applications is proud to announce its next major regional event in Bogotá, Colombia held on the 9 and 10 of November 2018, which will take place in partnership with the XIII International Congress of Electronics, Control and Telecommunications.

The two-day regional event will bring together Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree candidates, young professionals, experts, academia, space institutions and industry representatives to create a network, exchange know-how, share best practices and nurture the next generation’s perspective on space matters. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts from academia, businesses and space agencies through plenary and panel sessions, keynotes and interdisciplinary working group discussions.

Gathering around 100 delegates (18-35 years old) from all around South America, with expertise in diverse fields such as engineering, business, science, arts, medicine and law, these exchanges will focus on matters relevant for the present and future of the space sector in the region, new opportunities, and different topics regarding international cooperation, and space based problem solving for the South American countries. The Space Generation Workshops (SGWs) are held in every region, each focusing on challenges local to the region, involving both local & regional stakeholders. All discussions are expected to produce recommendations to relevant public, private and non-governmental sectors, helping to shape the future of the South American space environment. Reports and recommendations from the workshop will be presented at high-level conferences and included in the SGAC annual report submitted to the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS).
