    Title

    Sharing space achievements and heritage: space museums and societies

    Description

    Space societies, professional associations and museums form a special and important group of IAF members - nearly one quarter of the membership and, as a sector, second in size after space industries. They include professional societies, space museums, space associations, non-profit organisations and other organisations interested in space activities. Some have a large membership of 10 000 or more, others can be small; a few are already a century old, others are just being created. They exist in traditional and emerging space nations. Together they champion the interests of an impressive number of individuals and organizations connected to space. Space Museums are the visible face of space for most of the general public. This symposium offers a podium for ideas and proposals to enhance the interaction between the organisations, their members and the Federation. Papers may address proposals to exchange experiences and best practices; sharing articles, exhibitions or educational material; novel ideas to help outreach to the general public, etc. Of particular interest are papers exploring ways to foster communication and collaboration and to develop mutual benefits amongst young societies, representatives of emerging space nations and museums within and outside the IAF family.
