The Young Earth Scientists for Society (YES) network, an association of earth scientists under the age of 35 years representing geological societies from around the world, in collaboration with the International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE), is organising a world congress for young earth scientists, policy makers, advisors and decision makers.
The conference will focus on global climate, environmental and geological challenges facing today’s society, and aims to establish an interdisciplinary global network of individuals committed to solving these challenges.
Young representatives from main geological associations and employers, young leaders in politics and those from administrative bodies are invited to attend and create an interdisciplinary global network that will include future policy makers, advisors and decision makers.
Deadline for abstracts submission - 30 March
