Are you looking to join a global network of earth scientists? The Young Earth Scientists Network (YES Network) is an association of earth-scientists who are primarily under the age of 35 years that represent geological organisations and companies from across the world. The network has been established quite recently, in 2007, and has been running annual meetings since then. Each meeting has been held in different countries such as China, USA, and Austria during the EGU.
The network main aim is that Earth sciences should meet the needs of society hence the motto “Earth Sciences for Society”. YES works to provide young and early career earth scientists with information on how to obtain relevant skills and experiences, establish collaborative working relationships, and create global interdisciplinary networks. Thus, providing the tools young scientists will need to address some of society’s greatest challenges. Excited about the whole idea?
