United Nations / Germany High Level Forum: The way forward after UNISPACE+50 and on Space2030

The international space community will gather on the UN Campus in Bonn from 13 to 16 November 2018 for the United Nations/Germany High Level Forum: The way forward after UNISPACE+50 and on Space2030.

Held in June 2018 in Vienna, UNISPACE+50 marked the 50th anniversary of the first United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and provided an opportunity for the international community to consider the future course of global space cooperation for the benefit of humankind.

As the first High Level Forum (HLF) after UNISPACE+50, the HLF 2018 in Bonn is an opportunity to discuss its outcomes using the UNISPACE+50 Thematic Priorities and the four pillars of space economy, space society, space accessibility and space diplomacy as a framework for discussion.

The HLF will host two days of sessions on the thematic priorities, followed by two days of high-level panel discussions. It is expected to serve as an important platform for providing updates and recommendations on the potential of space innovations to address new and emerging sustainable development challenges.

Media representatives who would like to attend the event or request interviews should contact:

Radu Botez, United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs
Telephone: (+49-228) 815-0677
