The International Astronautical Federation (IAF) will organize the IAF Global Space Conference on Climate Change (GLOC 2023) hosted by its member, the Norwegian Space Agency (NOSA) in Oslo, Norway, from 23 to 25 May 2023.

GLOC 2023 will contribute to the global efforts to better understand and battle climate change through the use of space-based services and applications. First conference of its kind, GLOC 2023 is designed to encourage the sharing of programmatic, technical and policy information, as well as collaborative solutions, challenges, lessons learnt, and paths forward among all nations.

The conference programme is designed to bring together the international community, including senior representatives of the major space agencies, industries, governments, policy makers, academia and NGOs, as well as representatives of non-space sectors involved in the climate change debate. These leaders in the field will converge in Oslo, Norway to present results, exchange ideas, debate roadmaps, and discuss the future opportunities provided by space activities to contribute to the global climate change mitigation efforts.
