Event on Promoting and Raising Awareness in Space Science and Astronomy in Sierra Leone.
Space influencers support diversity, inclusivity, and want to overcome the stereotype that space is not for everyone. Space is for all and we all have a capacity to grow its awareness. It is up to us.
Canada boasts a long, proud history of leadership in the space sector. The Canadian Space Agency’s mastery of science and technology is perhaps best depicted through its robotic emblems such as the Canadarm, Canadarm2 and Dextre. Today, however, the space sector is growing and changing rapidly. These winds of change bare a resemblance to the vibrant colours of autumn in Canada, and Canadian scientists, engineers, and private businesses are certainly responding in stride, with a bustling, growing space economy and emerging opportunities, including a progressive start-up scene.

VIENNA, 8 September 2020—The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) announced the winners of the second Space4Youth Competition, that asked youth all over the world to provide their ideas and examples from their community to leverage space for Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate Action.
Climate change is the defining issue of our time. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of flooding, the impact of climate change is global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Action is needed and young people play a key role. UNOOSA and SGAC want to give a voice to and promote youth’s ideas on how space, in all its aspects, can mitigate climate challenges.
