UN-Space is an interagency mechanism for coordinating space-related activities within the United Nations system. The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs serves as the UN-Space Secretariat.
The international community seeks to balance access to the benefits of the exploration and peaceful use of outer space with the need to preserve and protect the outer space environment for future generations. A Working Group of the Scientific and Technical Subcommittee is devoted to this theme.
