Young Geoscientists Group
The YGG aims to provide a forum for networking, support and guidance for early career (post–graduation to chartered) Geoscientists in a sociable and friendly environment. YGG is open to everyone employed in all fields of Geology and Earth Science from postgraduate studies and research, to industry, consultancy and teaching.
Past meetings have covered:
- General interest talks
- Meetings where the members themselves give short (10 – 15 mins) presentations on their work, research or interest area.
- Chartership ‘workshops’
- More relaxed social/networking meetings, to increase contact and support between members.
Each Regional Group is responsible for organising their own YGG/careers events. Working with the Regional Groups in this way will hopefully also increase the input from other geoscientists within the region, increasing the possibilities for more informal mentoring and assistance in the Chartership and longer-term CPD journey. Part of this is the Early Career Awards being held or set up in many of the regions, which should ensure YGG activities continue to flourish. The YGG has therefore become more of a virtual network.
