Contribution to the SDGs

Access to Space for All is key in raising awareness about what space technology can do for the Sustainable Development Goals. Each application for an Access to Space for All hands-on opportunity requests the applicants to provide information on how their activity will support the Sustainable Development Goals. To date, UNOOSA has received applications that spanned over the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Examples of how Access to Space for All supports the Sustainable Development Goals are:

  • SDG 4 "Quality Education": Access to Space for All provides educational resources supporting the hands-on component.
  • SDG 8 "Decent Work and Economic Growth": Access to Space for All builds capacity for individuals to access jobs in the space industry.
  • SDG 9 "Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure": Thanks to some of the hands-on opportunities of Access to Space for All, institutions create facilities that remain available once the opportunity has been completed.

However, the contribution of the initiative goes beyond those three SDGs. Access to Space for All initiative for Sustainability: Interview Series is a series of interviews of the partners and the awardees in the initiative, where they explain how their projects are tackling different SDGs.
