2nd Global Virtual Conference of the YEAH 2020


The 2nd Global Virtual Conference of the YEAH, held on Wednesday, December 09, 2020, was a major step toward our mission. The theme of this conference was SDGS for the SDGs: Students Doing Goal-Oriented Science for the Sustainable Development Goals. We hosted individuals from diverse research and academic backgrounds to share their research and knowledge of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals from any discipline in a supportive and encouraging environment. Please find the incredible research, aspirations, and ideas shared by students from across the globe on our Padlet.

Through opportunities, such as the 2nd Global Virtual Conference of the YEAH and seminars, we are excited to provide students an opportunity to practice and prepare for COP26 scheduled to be held in Glasgow on 1-12 November, 2021!
