Encouraging innovative and creative ideas where space contributes to sustainable development (SD) for our society is a vital ingredient for the European space sector. Stimulating and enriching the debate around the links between space and SD challenges while keeping a multi-disciplinary scope and global approach were the main motivations for the European Interparliamentary Space Conference (EISC) and the European Space Agency (ESA) to launch the ‘Space for Sustainability Award’ in 2012.

Every year, the ‘Space for Sustainability Award’ is targeting students and young professionals under 30 with Project Ideas which will enable the space sector to put SD on a formal footing, raise awareness among the younger generations and professionals, and contribute to furthering the debate on the topic.

The Award is rewarded annually during the fall plenary session of EISC to the best Project Idea that integrates application areas focusing on sustainability linked to space.
