Global Future Council on the Future of Space

Council mission and objectives

The space sector is transforming and growing rapidly, with new and innovative concepts positioning themselves in an already busy area of the Lower Earth Orbit, and non-space actors starting to engage with existing and new business models. How can international collaboration and public-private partnerships address critical emerging gaps and ensure sustainable and inclusive development on Earth and in space?
