Travel expenses will be available for two young people to attend a space planning workshop including prominent individuals such as Freeman Dyson, Elon Musk and Dr Harrison Schmitt. The workshop will be held in conjunction with a conference titled, "The Future of Space Exploration: Solutions to Earthly Problems?", taking place on April 12-14 2007.

The selection of the two youth representatives will be based on volunteer contributions to the planning and execution of a survey on the topic "Key Events for the next 50 years". The youth volunteers will be asked to participate in the survey processing, and the writing of the report. The top two contributors to this process will be selected and funded to travel to the workshop. To be eligible you must be between 18 and 29 years old on 12 April 2007.

The deadline for Round 1 applications is 15th of January, 2007 for the survey. (http://www.spacegeneration.org/survey/survey.php?id=4QG3M1AF). Delegates can join in until then (http://www.spacegeneration.org/index2.php?q=node/13)
