Handbook For New Actors Overview Workshop

When: Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Where: 1779 Massachusetts Ave. NW Washington, DC, 20036

In 2015, SWF initiated a project to develop a Handbook for New Actors in Space. The handbook is intended to reach two categories of new actors in space: States developing national space policies and regulations; and start-up companies, universities, and other non-governmental entities beginning their first foray into space activities. The goal of the handbook is to provide both groups with a broad overview of the fundamental principles, laws, norms, and best practices for peaceful, safe, and responsible activities in space. This will help ensure the long-term sustainable use of space so that humanity can continue to derive the many benefits space activities have to offer for the foreseeable future.

This workshop brought together experts from industry, government, and academia to discuss the topics and issues that should be included in the Handbook.  

The agenda can be found here.
