In 1999, at UNISPACE III, the Space Generation Advisory Council was created. At this time the Space Generation Forum was held and it was recommended “to create, within the framework of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, a consultative mechanism to facilitate the continued participation of young people from all over the world, especially young people from developing countries and young women, in cooperative space-related activities”. SGAC would like to celebrate this historic event by hosting the second Space Generation Forum, now known as Space Generation Forum 2.0, in the form of a pre-twentieth anniversary event.
