For the past year there has been an initiative to consolidate European space weather and climate community and to sustain and develop the successful efforts made thus far.This initiative culminated in the community vote which decided that an International Non-Profit Association (INPA) should be formed. Since then, a group of volunteers (the Interim board) has worked to prepare all legal and administrative aspects needed to establish the INPA, which will be formally registered and led by a group of people elected by the community at the Space Weather Working Team meeting at European Space Weather Week 2021. This topical discussion meeting (TOM) is devoted to discuss how this new structure will be organized, what are the rights, privileges and obligations of its members, what is its future and how to get involved. The TOM is open to everyone who is interested in the future of the European Space Weather and Space Climate community (users, scientists, stakeholders, European, non European...).
