For Member States Partnerships Awardees Contribution to the SDGs Brochure
Hypergravity/Microgravity Track Satellite Development Track Space Exploration Track
The Hypergravity/Microgravity Track is designed with the end goal of developing the capacity of running various space experiments onboard the orbital vehicles or space stations.
The Satellite Development Track is aiming at building the capacity to design, implement, verify, operate and decommission a satellite in a responsible and sustainable manner.
The Space Exploration Track is designed to cover aspects related to space exploration beyond the geostationary orbit and provides opportunities, as building blocks, to that goal.
Partnerships are a distinctive feature of the Initiative. Access to Space for All is only possible thanks to partnerships with various public and private actors, who are contributing to the initiative in various ways.
New partnerships and contributions are possible and encouraged.
Space technologies, data and applications are key enablers for development, in the same way access to internet is an enabler. The Access to Space for All initiative enables communities from all over the world to use and benefit from space technologies and applications thanks to the cooperation among established space actors, the United Nations and non or emerging space entities.
Access to Space for All is key in raising awareness about what space technology can do for the Sustainable Development Goals. Each application for an Access to Space for All hands-on opportunity requests the applicants to provide information on how their activity will support the Sustainable Development Goals. To date, UNOOSA has received applications that spanned over the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Examples of how Access to Space for All supports the Sustainable Development Goals are:
However, the contribution of the initiative goes beyond those three SDGs. Access to Space for All initiative for Sustainability: Interview Series is a series of interviews of the partners and the awardees in the initiative, where they explain how their projects are tackling different SDGs.
Through the various programmed under the initiative, UNOOSA has awarded opportunities to 30 awardees from all regions. The awardees conduct various activities, not only for the development of science and technology, but also outreach, education, and other impactful actions. Learn more about the teams and their space/related activities.
The brochure was published in June 2022 and brings an overview of the initiative and each opportunity, along with messages from our partners, and the success stories of the awardees. Download and read to learn more about the initiative in detail.
