The Moon Village Association (MVA) has been recently created as non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Vienna. Its goal is the creation of a permanent global informal forum for stakeholders like governments, industry, academia and the public interested in the development of the Moon Village. The MVA fosters cooperation for existing or planned global moon exploration programs, be they public or private initiatives. It comprises approximately 150 members from more than 34 countries around the globe, representing a diverse array of technical, scientific, cultural and interdisciplinary fields.
On 2018, March 28th at the IAF Spring Meetings in Paris, France, The Moon Village Association President Giuseppe Reibaldi released the MVA Promotional video and provided a presentation regarding the long-term challenges that need to be solved to support the creation of a permanent human presence on the Moon.
