Introduction

The Artemis Accords have been proposed by the US as a series of bilateral agreements to help facilitate human exploration of space, particularly the moon. These agreements are outside the treaty process that has till now governed space. With Australia committed to its own Moon to Mars program, and a signatory to the Moon Agreement, it will be more affected by the progress of the Artemis Accords than many countries.

This workshop brings together a number of Australian stakeholders to discuss where Australia stands in this new environment.

The webinars will take place over Zoom. Please register via Eventbrite to receive the Zoom link and secure your spot, places are limited. Audience members will be able to participate via Slido and live chat. A Slido code will be provided a few days in advance of the event.
