Co-organized by the Global Young Academy and the Young Academy of Sweden, the Second Worldwide Meeting of Young Academies was a great chance to meet and exchange experience and discuss successful Young Academy activities. The representatives of participating National Young Academies discussed and planned future networking and cooperation both on a global and regional level.

Moreover the program included a joint conference with the European Commission’s in-house science service, Joint Research Centre (JRC) on 17 November 2015, where the participants discussed the opportunities and threats of the outcomes of the “UN Summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda” (25-27 September 2015, New York) and more particularly the role of science for their implementation with high level representatives of the EU and other international organizations.
