Youth Leaders Gather in Valencia to Issue Collective Vision on Space


Valencia, Spain, September 27, 2006 --(PR.com)-- Students and young professionals from all over the world are all making their way to Valencia to be a represent their countries in the Space Generation Congress 2006. This premier international youth event for space enthusiasts is organized by the Space Generation Advisory Council. The Space Generation Congress (SGC) will take place from 28 to 30 September, 2006 at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia.

Over one hundred delegates from 39 different countries have been working together virtually to formulate the visions and recommendations of youth on the exploration and peaceful uses of space. In Valencia, these hard-working delegates will get to meet their team members who share the same vision and passion for space activities, exploration and applications worldwide. “One hundred young delegates cannot change the world alone, but as one hundred leaders they can change the course of human history”, said Tim Bailey, Event Manager for SGC 2006.

Their collaborative efforts will be finalized and reflected in the main outcome of this year’s congress – the Global Youth Declaration on Space. The youth declaration aims to be an authoritative source on the positions that young people hold regarding global space policies. The declaration will likely address issues on exploration, education, the uses of space and other space activities.

“When policy-makers are making decisions that will impact the future of our space activities, the SGC declaration will tell them exactly how the people who will be most affected by those decisions feel,” said Daphne Dador, SGC Global Space Policy moderator.

Space Generation Congress 2006 is also the inaugural event for the SGAC-IAF Young Professional Program (YPP), which will provide a unique platform for young people in today’s space industry to access the best training and skills required to be tomorrow’s leaders. Key speakers at the Congress and the YPP include International Astronautical Federation President, Jim Zimmerman, space veteran James (Jim) Burke, and entrepreneur Bob Citron amongst many others.

At the 3-day conference, delegates will also benefit from intense workshops and skills training. This year’s theme “Building Our Future in Space” captures the new spirit of personal commitment in the space industry. Members of the media are cordially invited to observe.
