Latin America Beyond LEO: Securing Regional Participation in the Moon Village

United towards the Moon: this session will be an open discussion about why Latin America and the Caribbean region should insert lunar research into its current space activities, actually limited to earth’s orbit and in the end of the session we will draw conclusions and plan the steps ahead in order to secure a place for the region in the Moon Village.
