Roundtable workshop – Sustainable Development in the Space Sector: Special focus on the Central and Eastern European Region, 9-10 March 2015 in Prague

The European Space Agency (ESA) in cooperation with the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic, is organizing a one and a half-day roundtable, which is part of a series of roundtables held on Sustainable Development related issues. In continuation of the Roundtable series held at ESA HQ in Paris throughout 2012 and 2013, the Roundtables in 2014 and 2015 aim at involving Member States of ESA and different regions more actively. For this reason we are holding roundtables in the South, North and East of Europe. We already had the first two events in the Southern region, Lisbon Portugal, and the Northern Region, Stockholm Sweden, in 2014. Now we will go to the Central and Eastern European Region.


As usual the aim of the meeting is to strengthen a platform amongst actors mainly from the space sector but also with other actors with a strong Sustainable Development policy and experience in the topics to be discussed. Additionally, we are involving local partners and companies in the discussion.

The upcoming roundtable will have a day with two panel sessions. The first session will be on ‘Space for Sustainability’ – how and with what is space contribution to a sustainable future. It will further focus on urban development. The second session will be on ‘Sustainability in the space sector’. Companies and organisations will talk about how they are engaging in Sustainable Development. On the second day there will be a special field visit to round up the event.

The expectation for these workshops is to identify both common approaches and specific standards for the space sector in dealing with sustainable development issues as well as the sharing of best practices especially by also including leaders in the field of Sustainable Development in the discussion.

The application for registration should be sent to the e-mail address: Karoline.Marburger@esa.int. (Capacity is limited to 30 participants).

Preliminary programme can be foud here.
