Ariane 5 City-Launcher Partnership
The Ariane 5 City-Launcher Partnership Programme offers the possibility for CVA member cities to adopt an Ariane 5 launcher and name it to the name of the city. The name of the city will then be displayed on the Ariane 5 fairing.
The partnering city is encouraged to organize an appropriate local festivity on the occasion of the launch. At the time of the launch the partnering city should be represented in the European space port Kourou in French Guyana and offer - by any means - some insight into its origin and culture to the Guyanese population.
A short trailer on the partnering city can be included into the official live television transmission of the launch. The live coverage of the launch, which is offered by Arianespace, is broadcasted by many TV stations all over the world.
Prerequisites for participation include :
A CVA member City and Kourou in French Guyana
