The exploration and utilization of the Moon is the next giant leap for Humanity, which will offer unique and unlimited opportunities to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs and prepare our common future. This session at the UN Science Summit aims to present on the Moon Village Association's (MVA) Global Expert Group for Sustainable Lunar Activities (GEGSLA) and their recently developed Recommended Framework.

The MVA is an international non-governmental organization that aims to foster the concept of a sustainable human presence on the Moon, promoting collaboration among various stakeholders and peaceful exploration. To achieve this, the GEGSLA was created bringing together experts from around the world in order to develop a Recommended Framework and Key Elements for Peaceful and Sustainable Lunar Activities.

The session explores the intersections between the GEGSLA Framework and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 8, 9, 10, 12 and 16. It also highlights the importance of the recent UN Policy Brief 7 of Our Common Agenda titled “For All Humanity – the Future of Outer Space Governance'' and how the GEGSLA Framework can contribute to the implementation of the recommendations presented in the Policy Brief in preparation for the Summit of the Future
