Welcome to the YESS community

YESS, the Young Earth System Scientists community, strives to help shape the future of Earth system science, by fostering international and transdisciplinary leaders of tomorrow who pioneer the development and delivery of research and knowledge, which provide solutions to benefit society, towards a more equitable and sustainable future.

YESS focuses on Early Career Researchers (ECR) working in the interdisciplinary field of Earth system sciences, including social and natural scientists.

Members within YESS cover a large breath of scientific expertise, including – but not limited to – weather, climate, geophysics, economy, engineering, hydrology, architecture, anthropology, governance, many more.

YESS’ main focus is on academia. YESS also welcomes members from other sectors related to Earth system science, following a broader definition of ‘research’. This may include researchers and young professionals in governmental institutes, NGOs, public outreach institutions, and the private sector
