The Nobel Prize Summit: Our Planet, Our Future

26-28 April 2021 · Virtual event

Our future depends on our collective ability to become effective stewards of the global commons – the climate, ice, land, ocean, fresh water, forests, soils and rich diversity of life.

The first Nobel Prize Summit brings together Nobel Prize laureates, scientists, policy makers, business leaders, and youth leaders to explore the question: What can be achieved in this decade to put the world on a path to a more sustainable, more prosperous future for all of humanity?

Across three days, the virtual event will combine keynotes and lively discussion with live performance and theatre. Speakers will explore solutions to some of humanity’s greatest challenges: climate change and biodiversity loss, increasing inequality, and technological innovation in support of societal goals.

Data Sharing Seminar Series for Societies

The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) is part of a collaborative effort to present a seminar series on Data Sharing. Led by AGU, this series has been created with a goal of developing a better understanding of the evolving data (and software) sharing research culture. By connecting societies with invited speakers who are actively engaged with journals, funders, institutions, repositories, and other research communities on the practices available and challenges yet to be addressed, this series will emphasize the unique role societies have in bringing awareness of developing practices and supporting the necessary discussions within disciplines to bring their voice to the larger community.  

Scheduled for the first Friday or each month, from 10:00 - 11:00 am Eastern, the inaugural seminar on Data Sharing and Citation: How Societies can Make a Difference, will be presented on Friday, February 5th and will feature the following speakers:

  • Shelley Stall, American Geophysical Union (bio)
  • Juliane Baron, Federation of Associations Behavioral and Brain Sciences (bio)
  • Helena Cousijn, DataCite (bio)
