Towards A Zero Debris Future
Day: Monday 2 October
Time: 15:30 - 16:15 AZT (GMT+4)
Location: Heydar Aliyev Center (HAC) Auditorium
This panel is driven by the shared concern about the continuing degradation of the outer space environment which puts space activities evermore at risk and, consequently, the need for more ambitious actions on space debris mitigation and remediation from all stakeholders. Heads of agencies are invited to highlight their views and measures on space safety and sustainability. The goal of the panel would be to identify collective efforts of a community of proactive actors towards jointly defined ambitious, meaningful and measurable targets by 2030. ESA's recently announced zero-debris charter will be introduced and discussed as a vehicle to drive joint ambitions in this field.
