The Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) would like to acknowledge it’s many generous supporters and sponsors from industry, academia, and national agencies.
At SGAC our central asset is our membership. However, our activities would not be possible without the support of partners and donors. Whether you choose to commission a product, partner in a project, or donate to SGAC, the value of your contribution in empowering students and young professionals around to world is significant.
As a non-profit organisation, SGAC relies on the sponsorship and support of government, non-government and industry organisations, as well as private individuals. This sponsorship money will support the costs of organising and funding the Space Generation Congress as well as other SGAC activities in Bremen, Germany.
The Space Generation Congress (SGC) is SGAC’s annual meeting in support of the United Nations (UN) Programme on Space Applications. Top university students and young professionals with a passion for space will travel from all around the globe to attend three days of the 17th SGC.
The 17th SGC will take place in Bremen, Germany from 27th – 29th September 2018, in conjunction with the 69th International Astronautical Congress (IAC).
The aim of the SGC is twofold:
- To strengthen the international network of the SGAC. From the perspective of the individual delegate, many of whom come from developing countries, it is a chance to interact and engage with the incoming generation of space policy professionals from all over the world. From the perspective of the SGAC, it allows us to consolidate our international links in order to best represent and facilitate the voice of the next space generation. For instance, 150 delegates from more than 43 different nationalities participated to SGC 2017 in Adelaide, Australia; 82 of which received a scholarship to attend both SGC and the IAC.
- To examine and consider key questions that the space and international community currently face. The SGC delegates, having a wide range of backgrounds and diverse academic and professional experiences offer a unique insight on many of these issues. SGC acts as the forum for them to discuss and deliberate pertinent topics in the space to be presented to the international community. For instance, at SGC 2017, SGAC had 6 working groups on different topics such as Space Exploration, Space Innovation or Space Law.
