National Space Awareness Workshop 2010

This biennial event, hosted by the Canadian Alumni of the International Space University (CAISU), aims at promoting space awareness among students, young professionals, and the community in general. This year, participants at NSAW will be immersed in a dynamic and interdisciplinary setting focused on the theme: “ISS to Commercialization: Canada’s Future Space Contributions”.

NSAW 2010 will explore media and public perception of Canada’s participation in international space efforts, specifically relating to the promotion of future space commercialization efforts and utilization programs on the International Space Station between now and 2030.
Perspectives from space industry professionals, educators & media personalities, followed by a hands-on workshop for participants, will allow for close examination of how Canada can be better prepared to participate on the world stage in the coming two decades, and how we can most effectively elicit the support of the Canadian public.
