The 2023 Event Series

After the success of the 2021 event series, UNOOSA is organising a new virtual discussion series that aims to raise awareness and build capacity in the context of the implementation of the Guidelines on the Long-term Sustainability of Outer Space Activities (LTS Guidelines). 
Each event is linked with one section of the LTS Guidelines (A-D) and includes a 90-minute panel session, engaging once again diverse experts in the space field, in a discourse-oriented structure. The objectives of the events are to deal with the complexity of the LTS Guidelines step by step, to showcase successful implementation examples, while supporting peer-to-peer exchange on topics of concern.

The planned date and time of the four events: 

  • Event 1 on policy and regulatory framework for space activities (section A of the LTS Guidelines) – 5 April 2023, starting at 2 p.m. CEST;
  • Event 2 on safety of space operations (section B of the LTS Guidelines) – 22 May 2023, starting at 2 p.m. CEST;
  • Event 3 on international cooperation, capacity-building and awareness (section C of the LTS Guidelines) – 12 June 2023, starting at 2 p.m. CEST; and
  • Event 4 on scientific and technical research and development (section D of the LTS Guidelines) – 26 June 2023, starting at 2 p.m. CEST
