The Nigerian Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) team has partnered with three student organisations to organise a webinar themed “Nigeria’s Insecurity in Focus; Utilising Space technology to redirect the course”. This webinar will highlight and address the various ways space technology is used and can be used to detect instances of insecurity and violation of human rights in Nigeria. Specifically, the discussions will enlighten the audience on the present status quo of utilising space for peace in the country, the challenges involved, and possible measures to enhance and promote the same.

The event invites undergraduates and young professionals interested in the country and the space sector, and other concerned Nigerians. On the side,  there will be a session dedicated to advising young people on ways to get involved in space-related activities in the country and beyond.

The event is set to hold on 18th September 2021 by 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM WAT.
