CVA (Community of Ariane Cities)

Association and Professional SocietyMember since 2012


The Community of Ariane Cities- CVA- was founded in 1998 and registered in France as a non-profit association, with the aim of strengthening the cooperation among cities and industrial organisations involved in European space transportation programmes, and informing citizens about the benefits of European space transportation activities and about French Guiana as the home to Europe’s Spaceport.

CVA organises programmes with member cities, their universities, educational authorities, schools and industrial companies. The joint programmes are of technical, cultural, educational and outreach nature, stressing the importance of intercultural cooperation, and helping to build longstanding relationships among citizens, especially the younger generations.
