Early Career Events

In connection with the 2022 Toronto Conference, the Earth System Governance Project will provide learning opportunities for emerging scholars, graduate students, and undergraduate student volunteers. Read our blog on the event here.

For Early Career scholars, the 2022 Toronto Conference will host opportunities aimed at training, mentoring, and networking through an Early Career Living Library Session and Early Career breakfast ahead of the official start of the Conference.

The Early Career Living Library session, planned to be held on 20th October, is geared toward training emerging scholars on fundamental concepts and theories of earth system governance research, with a focus on interconnected, synergistic themes.

Michelle Betsill will provide an interactive lecture with accompanying tasks for early career scholars. The emerging scholars will then be provided opportunities to find mentors and further their knowledge through a networking session with invited senior experts in the field. Themes will include tenure, publications, work-life balance, funding, the non-academic job-market and engaged scholarship


The Early Career Breakfast, planned for the morning of 21st October, will be geared toward networking, providing an opportunity for emerging scholars to establish their professional networks. The session will also include a practical training component for Early Career Scholars, in which they are asked to present their work through PechaKucha presentations and receive feedback from invited senior scholars.

There is a supplementary cost of 60 Canadian Dollars, which can be added to the preferred Registration ticket upon registering.
