U.S. Task Force – Policy & Advocacy
APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN (rolling)
The US Task Force welcomes all participants that qualify for SGAC membership (ages 18-35). Complete this form and we will be in contact.
SGAC’s U.S. Task Force is an American-led team of young professionals and students in the space industry. We envision the sustainable, fair, and cooperative development of outer space to benefit all people on Earth. We aim to further this vision through developing policy recommendations and background materials, facilitating discussions with experts, and encouraging broad involvement in policy.
This Task Force operates under the SGAC Space Generation Advocacy and Policy Platform (SGAPP).
Since its founding in January 2021, the U.S. Task Force has accomplished a tremendous amount. As part of SGAC’s mission to represent the young space generation, the Task Force has brought students and young space professionals from around the world together to communicate our vision of a sustainable, fair, and cooperative future in space to the U.S. policy community.
Perspective Blogs: Our mission is to provide a platform for SGAC members to share their perspectives on space policy topics. Contact us if you are interested in writing a blog. Authors of all levels are encouraged to participate.
Educational Materials: The Task Force produces memos, recommendations, and additional resources on pressing space policy topics. These materials are shared with the policy community, as well as a broader audience to encourage involved in policy discussions.
Webinar Series: Public webinars with topical experts encourage policy discussion with a broad audience. Our Space in 2050 series explores how history has shaped current events and how evolving policies may shape what space exploration endeavors look like in 2050. The Series takes a long-term perspective to better understand the challenges we, the younger generation, will face in the decades to come and what actions should be taken in the present.
