Danielle Wood spoke at the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs' 29th Workshop on Space Technology for Socio-Economic Benefits, which concentrated this year on "Access to Space for All: Bridging the Space Divide."  

The Workshop provided a forum for discussion on how space science, technologies and applications can support of sustainable economic, social and environmental development and the development of science, technology and innovation (STI) policies related to space and leveraging the Access to Space for All Initiative.

Considering the direct and/or indirect relevance of space to all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the workshop addressed the specific elements of SDG 4 (quality education), SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth), SDG 10 (reduced inequalities), SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), in addition to SDG 17 (partnerships for the Goals). It also served as a platform to ensure inclusive development in the areas of space technologies taking people, students, private sectors, researchers, academia, innovators and other actors on board in bringing the benefits of space exploration to the end-users.
