Global Young Academy


The Global Young Academy gives a voice to young scientists around the world. To realize the academy's vision, they develop, connect, and mobilize young talent from six continents. Moreover, they empower young researchers to lead an international, interdisciplinary, and inter-generational dialogue with the goal to make global decision making evidence-based and inclusive. The GYA provides a rallying point for outstanding young scientists from around the world to come together to address topics of global importance. As of 2014, the GYA has reached its full capacity with 200 members. Members are selected for their scientific excellence and their commitment to service, and serve five-year terms. Thus, as of May 2019, the GYA counts 258 alumni in addition to its 200 members; together representing 83 countries. The vibrancy of this global organization results from the energy of its members, who are passionate about the role of science in creating a better world.
