As more and more actors enter the space arena, the urgency of advocating sustainable development through space, corroborating the sustainability of outer space activities, and creating international solutions to problems such as the steady expansion of space debris, in order to preserve and protect space for future generations is a growing concern.
The benefits of space are substantial, most simply
demonstrated by how they contribute to each of the 17 sustainable development goals, especially, when it comes to forecasting natural disasters, monitoring natural resources and biodiversity, mapping infrastructure, and providing better access to education and reliable data.
MUNNISA 2023 aims to challenge delegates to look at space differently, as we come together to build upon the groundwork laid out by the UNOOSA. So, come fly with us as we leave the confines of Earth and explore ways to use space for global prosperity.
Space exploration is a force of nature unto itself that no other force in society can rival.
Not only does that get people interested in sciences and all the related fields,
[but] it transforms the culture into one that values science and technology, and that's the culture that innovates.
- Neil Degrasse Tyson
