Panel Organized by: Jean-Christophe Mauduit | American Association for the Advancement of Science

This session aims to highlight how young practitioners can participate in science policy and diplomacy, both domestically and internationally. The panel will feature young speakers involved in science policy at academic institutions, non-profits, governments and the UN system. They will address the intergenerational issue and challenges that young practitioners face and will provide their own view of what solutions can be implemented to provide more opportunities and career paths and will also provide their own vision for what they believe the future holds.
