SGAC: SG [Kuwait] – Push your imagination

Have you ever dreamed of being involved in Space Activities? Do you like to bring Space to Kuwait and be part of the future space activities in Kuwait? Do you like to publish a paper in a peer reviewed journal?

Space Generation [Kuwait] aims to gather the youth of Kuwait to express their thoughts and ideas about establishing a space program in the country. The local team of SG [Kuwait] will help students and young professionals who are between the age of 18 and 35 years old to write a proposal to establish a space program in Kuwait. Proposals will be presented during the SG [Kuwait] event day.

SG [Kuwait] will begin with a media campaign using international and local media platforms. The media campaign will call students and young professionals who are between the age of 18 and 35years old and living in Kuwait to join SG [Kuwait]. 10 groups will be selected,  each group will consist of 2 – 4 members. If you are an individual, you can still apply, as the organizing team of SG [Kuwait] will find a spot in teams for individuals. The local team of SG [Kuwait] will guide and support the groups on writing professional proposals. The guidance and support will consist of periodic meetings, educational resources and a proposal template. International colleagues from the Space Generation Advisory Council expressed their welling ness to support.
You can write down any idea you think suitable for establishing a space program in Kuwait. You can go through the organizational structure of the agency, the role of volunteer groups, or the role of the private sector. Do you want to send a mission to one of Jupiter’s moons to find life? Or just  send a satellite into earth’s orbit for earth imaging? All of the above and much more will be discussed among you as a team supported by the organizing team of SG [Kuwait]. After finalizing the proposal, teams will be required to present their proposals to an excited audience for discussion. After the discussion, you will have a solid idea and you can go further and discuss your ideas with decision makers
