Following our March decision to postpone the 2nd Summit for Space Sustainability, the SWF team is still closely monitoring the situation in regards to holding an in-person event in September. We are working through a variety of potential scenarios, each of which places the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and local community as our top priority. Please continue monitoring this space for further updates. You may also join our mailing list to receive updates directly. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to Conference Chair, Krystal Azelton, if you have any specific questions or concerns.

After careful consideration of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and the developments of this week, Secure World Foundation has decided to postpone the 2nd Summit for Space Sustainability from June 2-3, 2020 to September 10-11, 2020. The location will remain the same: FHI 360 in Washington, DC. 

This decision has not been taken lightly, but due to the uncertainties surrounding the spread of COVID-19 and the fact that the severity of this outbreak is already having large affects on travel and gatherings in the coming months, we have decided to adjust plans accordingly.  The safety and health of our attendees, speakers, and staff, as well as the quality of the event, remain our highest priorities, and we believe that postponing the Summit will alleviate health concerns as well as allow us to bring you a higher quality event. 

We thank our partners, speakers, and participants for their understanding and look forward to the event in September. Registration will remain open and programming and partner announcements will follow in the weeks and months to come.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to Conference Chair, Krystal Azelton, if you have any questions or concerns.
