When: Wednesday, February 5, 2020

Time: 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Where: Singapore

Secure World Foundation, in partnership with the Singapore Space & Technology Association (SSTA), organized a workshop on February 5, 2020 in Singapore on the topic of the “Responsible Space Behavior and the Democratization of Space.” The workshop was held on the day prior to the 2020 Global Space and Technology Convention (GSTC).

As the space start-up community continues to grow internationally, and the investment/finance community becomes more involved, SWF is working with partners to organize the “Space Investing & Responsible Behavior” workshop series. In a growing and diversifying community of space-interested investors, this discussion seeks to raise awareness of the importance of responsible operations practices in light of the unique challenges to the sustainability of the space domain. This workshop at GSTC examined the context through which the investor community can work with industry to encourage and implement responsible space operations practices. Topics discussed at this workshop included: 

  • Evolution of the commercial space industry
  • Industry-driven responsible space operations principles
  • Perspectives on the role of the investing community in incentivizing responsible behavior
