First Announcement: Early Career Researchers event prior to the 2016 Nairobi Conference
Developing a career in earth system governance – confronting challenges and charting new directions
Venue: African Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS), Nairobi, Kenya
Date: Tuesday, 06 December 2016
Time: 09:00 – 16:00
In conjunction with the Earth System Governance annual conference, taking place in Nairobi, Kenya from 07-10 December 2016, we would like to announce a pre-conference event for early career researchers interested in earth system governance. This one day event will explore the challenges and opportunities for developing a career in earth system governance research, addressing complex topics and societal inequalities. In this context, we will also discuss the contributions that early career researchers make to new directions in Earth System Governance.
The session will include keynote addresses from thought leaders in the field of earth system governance and discussion sessions to discuss challenges and opportunities moving forward as individual researchers and as a community. The format is focused on creating interactive opportunities for early career researchers to engage with each other and with senior faculty within the Earth System Governance network.
We welcome early career researchers participating in the 2016 Nairobi Conference on Earth System Governance to join us for this event. A more detailed program along with registration details will be made available by the end of August. Spaces are limited so we encourage early registration as it will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
