Join the GYA-ISC Dialogue on Rethinking Human Development on 7 December 2020
The Human Development Report (HDR) recently turned 30. As a global voice for young and early-career scientists, the GYA and its network of young academies around the world wish to explore the findings of the HDR – particularly the aspect of the role of scientific knowledge – and contribute to the ongoing dialogue around Rethinking Human Development for today’s world.
Under the auspices of the GYA’s Science Advice Working Group, GYA member Binyam Sisay Mendisu (UNESCO International Institute for Capacity Building in Africa, Ethiopia), who served as a steering committee member of the International Science Council project, will moderate this “GYA-ISC Dialogue” to contribute to the ongoing conversations.

Mark your calendars now and return July 2021 for the next round.
