What is the 7th South American Space Generation Workshop (SA-SGW)?

The 7th South American Space Generation Workshop (SA-SGW) is a one-day hybrid workshop, which brings together students, young professionals, industry experts and government stakeholders from across Latin America. It provides an unparalleled opportunity for the future leaders of South Americas’ space sector to proactively establish strong relationships, exchange ideas and knowledge, and to collaborate on novel ways in which space technology can be utilized for the benefit of the region. The 7th SA-SGW will be held on the 15th of May 2022 in Quito, Ecuador. Participants will be divided into working groups (WGs), each focusing on a specific sub-theme broadly covering Technology, Entrepreneurship, Policy and Capacity Building.  

The SA-SGW will be held the weekend prior to the IAF’s Global Conference on Space for Emerging Countries, which will be held from the 16th to the 20th of May 2022 in Quito, Ecuador. Click here for more information.

Who should attend?

We invite students and young professionals between the ages of 18 to 35 years old (as of May, 2022) who are residents/ whose country of citizenship is in South America / Latin America as well as other Emerging Countries around the world, and who are passionate about the space industry to apply to be a part of the delegation. Past delegates have attended from all around Latin America  and from a wide variety of disciplines (engineering, business, science, arts, medicine and law). We also encourage space enthusiasts from across the world to participate in this event.

What is my Role at the 7th SA-SGW?

By attending the South American Space Generation Workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn, share knowledge and network with fellow students and young professionals in the industry, and meet the industry’s leaders and experts. All discussions from the working groups are expected to produce recommendations to relevant public, private, and non-governmental sectors, helping to shape the future of the space industry for emerging countries with special emphasis in Latin America. 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).
