"Experiences of engaging as a youth & early-career marine researcher in science-policy-society interfaces"
In this edition of the ECOP Wednesdays event series, hosted by the EMB Young Ambassadors and the EMB Secretariat for the EMB ECOP network, Marie Morgane shared her experiences, engaging as a young and early-career marine researcher, mostly through the Global Youth Biodiversity Network, who represents young people in the United Convention on Biological Diversity.
Marie-Morgane is a PhD student at the University of Montpellier, France, based at the Centre for Functional and Evolutionary Ecology. Her PhD aims at building evidence-based science to inform the conservation of highly mobile seabirds. As a citizen and early career marine researcher, she is dedicated to building bridges between science, society and policy. She is a former co-coordinator of the European chapter of the Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN), the official youth representative in the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity, and a co-founder of the French chapter of the same network.
Many young people want to engage in science-policy-society interfaces, to contribute their vision for the future and bring about societal change. However, finding pathways to do so is not easy, as there are many existing interfaces and no clearly written rules to engage in these spaces. In this webinar, Marie-Morgane will share about her experiences, engaging in as a young and early-career marine researcher, mostly through the Global Youth Biodiversity Network, who represents young people in the United Convention on Biological Diversity.
