The early career researchers network of networks (ECR NoN) is a unit within the framework of Future Earth. The ECR NoN consists of several networks of early career researchers. Some of these networks are: Young Earth System Scientists, Young Scholars Initiative, International Union For Conservation Of Nature Early Career Group, Youth Network-International Co-operative Alliance etc.
We aim to create a platform that brings together without prejudice to nationality, discipline, gender, race, and religion, early career researchers with works on sustainability. The subject of climate science is of primary importance to us. We operate in solidarity to maintain a network that brings together diverse works of early career researchers.
The aim of the side event is to bring together early career researchers to share knowledge on the themes of the WCRP OSC 2023. At the side event, we hope to draw intersections between our diverse works and the conference themes. By so doing, contribute to bridging the knowledge gap on climate change. Middle career and fully established researchers shall be welcome at our side event. It is hoped these scholars would share their perspectives and serve as our mentors.
Our side event would be structured towards contributing to the content of WCRP OSC 2023 particularly from the early career perspectives. It shall also afford early career researchers an opportunity to gain deeper perspectives from our more established colleagues. Thus, it will serve as an avenue for networking and mentoring on climate change and the wider sustainability project.
