Early career researchers’ events seek to build individual and collaborative capacity among early career researchers (ECRs) to engage with the challenges of earth system governance research. These events are opportunities for ECRs to network prior to the annual landmark conferences of the Project, and to discuss conceptual, methodological and capacity aspects of earth system governance research, including identifying common research interests and future collaboration possibilities. The events’ keynote addresses from thought leaders in the field of earth system governance and discussion sessions are aimed at creating interactive opportunities for ECRs to engage with each other and with senior faculty within the Earth System Governance network.
