The main goal of the ISDRS Mentorship Programme is to connect senior academics (mentor) with junior academics (mentee) in a meaningful way, and thereby creating a mutual benefit, and cementing a stronger relationship between all involved: the new professionals, the senior ones, and within ISDRS as a whole.

Applications for the ISDRS New Professionals Group’s Mentorship Programme are now closed. We will be announcing the start of the 2022 programme and information in the autumn of 2021

First Status Report on Community-led Action on Sustainability and Climate Change in Europe: This report shows how local communities are catalysing social, economic and ecological transformation in Europe!

The New Professionals Group aims to be a platform for early-stage researchers working with sustainable development. Our main event is the annual PhD workshop at the ISDRS conferences, but we are always looking for activities that will strengthen our community.

The aim of the workshop is to support early career researchers working on sustainable development related topics by providing them with an arena for discussion of their on-going research projects with peers and senior academics. Any early career researcher attending the  ISDRS Conference is eligible to register for this PhD workshop, once their abstract is accepted and conference fees are paid.
