EISC-ESA ‘Space for Sustainability Award’
The ‘Space for Sustainability Award’ was launched during the Polish Presidency of the 14th European Interparliamentary Space Conference (EISC) to raise awareness, stimulate the debate on space and sustainable development (SD) issues and be a tool for innovative and creative project ideas in those areas.
This Award, managed by ESA under the auspices of the EISC Presidency, will enable sustainable development principles to be established and integrated at various levels of the space sector through actual projects. EISC is a yearly forum where distinguished members of parliament of EU Member States meet in order to exchange information on space and the implementation of public policies in the EU Member States, and is thus a suitable framework in which to launch this competition.
The ‘Space for Sustainability Award’ will be rewarded annually during the fall plenary session of EISC to the best Project Idea that integrates application areas focusing on sustainability linked to space.
