In 2019, the World Science Forum, to take place from 20-23 November 2019 in Budapest, will celebrate 20 years of history in science diplomacy, commemorating the 1999 UNESCO World Conference on Science held in Budapest and the prominent role the World Science Forum series has played in bringing together leaders of the world of science ever since. The Ethics and Responsibility of Science will be at the focus of the 2019 Forum, also reflecting back to the 1999 forum theme.
To represent young scientists worldwide, the GYA has been formally invited to join the Steering Committee of the World Science Forum (WSF). GYA Co-Chair Connie Nshemereirwe (Uganda) represents the GYA on the Steering Committee, and as a member, is tasked with nominating young scientists to take part in plenary sessions, and with organising the young scientist pre-conference workshop in partnership with other young scientist organisations.
