Future Earth and the Global Young Academy (GYA) aim to elevate early career voices at the Sustainability Research & Innovation (SRI) Congress 2021 through the support of five early career champions in their contribution to the SRI2021 closing plenary. At the SRI2021 closing plenary, the early career champions will speak along with the co-chairs of the 2023 Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) Independent Group of Scientists.
The Champions will have a visible and active role throughout the Congress, by bringing young researchers’ perspectives to the scholarly discussions, increasing diversity and innovativeness. At the closing plenary, they will reflect on the highlights of the five Congress themes and bring forward perspectives on behalf of the early career community. Registration fees will be also covered.
