    Title

    Assuring a Safe, Secure and Sustainable Space Environment for Space Activities

    Description

    Space activities provide a wealth of increasing benefits for people on Earth. However space actors have come to realise that in order to continue the many benefits the world community has come to depend on, the international community will have to develop the technical, legal, policy, and political means to keep a safe, secure and sustainable space environment. This session will explore the progress being made within multilateral for a, the private sector, and individual countries in reaching a safe, secure, and sustainable space environment. It will especially examine activities within the UN Committee for the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space; the European Union proposed Code of Conduct for Space Activities, and other efforts to create the conditions for this desired end.
