Satellite Sessions

Satellite sessions are organised and supported by individuals, non-profit groups, organisations, or commercial entities. The Union offers these groups the opportunity to showcase their work, research and programmes, or draw more attention to a specific subject or area by organising a satellite. All satellite sessions are reviewed for compliance with The Union’s mission and vision.

Organisations can still submit a satellite session.
