The spUn (space policy and Universalization) Debates educational program was first piloted at NSS 2018 ISDC (International Space Development Conference). Its goal is to encourage students to develop skills in research, critical thinking, organization, persuasion and communication while considering space policy. The success of the 2018 debates resulted in even more student participants and debate visibility at the 2019 ISDC.
For 2020, the debates are again being expanded - but NSS needs your help. The spUN Debates attract students from around the world and are an exciting way for students to learn about and debate space policy and governance issues.Your donation to the spUn Debate fund is important.
