The Space Generation Congress (SGC) is the annual meeting of the Space Generation Advisory Council always held in conjunction with the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) at the same hosting country. The Delegates are ~150 top university students and young professionals with a passion for space. They are selected with a highly competitive application process open to our Space Generation international network. With SGC, SGAC aims to promote the voice of the next generation of space sector leaders on the topic of international space development.
The overarching event theme for SGC 2022 is Diversity, Access and Inclusion, to celebrate the rich and vibrant SGAC community, discuss important aspects of DAI in the space sector and how we can create a future in space that benefits all of humanity. Read more about the event theme here.
The delegate application process is now closed for SGC 2022. We can’t wait to meet the selected delegates in Paris in September!

Space Generation Congress Goals
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 20th SGC. Up to 150 delegates will enjoy an inspiring and resourceful engagement with their peers at the congress, held in Paris, on September 14-16 2022, prior to the 73rd International Astronautical Congress (IAC). Delegates will gain exposure to perspectives on space issues from the world’s leading space organisations, including: the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS). In demonstrating the symbiotic relationship, leaders from these space organisations gained fresh, innovative and bold perspectives from the incoming space generation. Several sponsors along with a committee of volunteers are supporting the preparation of the 20th SGC. Without the support of SGAC’s dedicated volunteers and the continual support of our partners and sponsors, the 19th SGC would not be possible.
