Global Climate Change is recognized as one of the most urgent and crucial issues for humankind’s sustainable future. So far, Space Systems have played an important role as a key source of critical data because of its global monitoring capability and space is expected to contribute much more extensively from various view points in the future. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) is organizing a symposium to discuss possible contributions to this urgent issue from the space sector, with strong support of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Aichi Prefectural Government, Institute for Unmanned Space Experiment Free Flyer (USEF) and Society for Promotion of Space Science. In parallel, a workshop is also planned to provide focused inputs to the IAA climate change/green systems study group report, including high level recommendations on this issue. This event is a key part of the preparation for a planned “Heads of Space Agencies Summit” in Washington D.C. on 17th November 2010, which is also to be organized by IAA as the final event of its 50th anniversary celebration. All who are interested in this crucial issue and want to contribute these activities are cordially invited to join the symposium and the workshop.
