Call for Participation – Moon Village – Participation of Emerging Space Countries (MV- PESC) Project

1. INTRODUCTION

The Moon Village Association fosters global participation in the Moon Village.

The aim of the Moon Village Participation of Emerging Space Countries (MV-PESC) project is to find concrete opportunities for non-space faring countries and emerging space countries in the Moon Village.

Currently, there are many plans for missions to the moon by advanced space faring countries. However, most of the world are left behind. The MV-PESC program tries to identify commercial, engineering, scientific and cultural opportunities for non-space faring countries and emerging space countries
.
The programme has two components:

  1. MV-PESC event:

This is a 2 days’ workshop and forum that targets the youth in a particular country. The aim of the event is to spark interest in the Moon Village.

  1. Roadmap:
