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.
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. This is carried out through 1-2 interactive lectures with accompanying tasks for the 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.
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 own 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.
