In this regard, questions have been raised by international community:
The idea of launching studies and research on technological heritage connected with space exploration within the framework of the Global Strategy for the balanced, representative and credible World Heritage List, emerged in 2007. In 2009, a proposal regarding the definition of categories of Space Technological sites was included in the Kazan Resolution adopted by the participants of the International Conference organized within the framework of the UN International Year of Astronomy (Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russian Federation, 2009).
An estimated extra-budgetary funding of USD 70,000 is foreseen for the implementation of this activity. These funds will cover organisation of the first International Workshop on Space Technological Heritage at UNESCO Headquarters.
