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 researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of Earth system sciences, including social and natural scientists.
