27 August 2017 - UNESCO supports 4th Congress of Young Earth Sciences Network in Tehran

  • Published in Other

On 27 August, the 4th YES (Young Earth Sciences) Congress was opened in Tehran. The four-day congress is aimed at young scientists from around the world and focuses on topics, such as: geoscience for society; geology and mineral resources; fundamental geology; environmental and medical geology; climate change and hydrogeology; geohazards and disasters; geoinformatics applications for earth science; geoheritage; and petroleum geosiences.

The YES Network is an international association of early-career geoscientists, who are primarily under the age of 35 years and from universities, geoscience organizations and companies from across the world. The YES Network was formed as a result of the International Year of Planet Earth in 2007. In 2009, the YES Network organized its first international Congress at the China University of Geosciences in Beijing, under the patronage of UNESCO.

Speaking at the opening of the 4th Congress in Tehran, UNESCO Representative Ms. Esther Kuisch Laroche, talked about UNESCO’s important work in geosciences.

“As the only UN agency with a mandate in geosciences, UNESCO has been working for over forty years with the International Union for Geological Sciences to mobilize global cooperation in the Earth sciences through the International Geoscience Programme”, said Ms. Kuisch Laroche. “The Programme brings together scientists from around the world and provides them with seed money to devise and conduct joint international research and to collectively publish the results.”

The UNESCO Representative also spoke about UNESCO’s Global Geoparks, and the addition of Iran’s Qeshm Island to this global network of sites with landscapes of international geological significance. “The purpose of UNESCO Global Geoparks is to explore, develop and celebrate the links between geological heritage and all other aspects of the area’s heritage. It is about reconnecting human society at all levels to the planet we call home and to celebrate how Earth’s history has shaped every aspect of our lives and societies.”

Finally, Ms. Kuisch Laroche highlighted UNESCO’s work on Geohazard Risk Reduction and called upon the young earth scientists to use their knowledge and network to contribute to UNESCO’s International Platform on Earthquake Early Warning Systems. “We need young scientists like yourselves to contribute to this body of research in order to improve our knowledge and the available technology, which could mark a dramatic improvement in the field of disaster risk reduction”, said the UNESCO Representative.

The 4th YES Congress, which will run until 30 August, includes workshops, exhibitions and geological excursions. To learn more about the Congress or the YES Network, please see:

The Kharazmi International Award, administered by the Iranian Research Organisation for Science and Technology (IROST), was created in 1987.

During the 30th Kharazmi International Award celebration, Ms. Esther Kuisch Laroche, Director of the UNESCO Cluster Office in Tehran, read out a special message from UNESCO’s Director General for the occasion.

“In addition to highlighting excellence in scientific fields, the Khwarizmi International Award plays a pivotal role in strengthening research and innovation capacities worldwide and in promoting admirable role models for future generations. At a time when the world will need an additional 1.2 million researchers by 2030, the impact of the award is all the more important in shining light on the urgency of research for more inclusive and sustainable development”, said Ms. Kuisch Laroche.

“The life and accomplishments of the great mathematician and astronomer Al-Khwarizmi set an outstanding example to be studied and shared, for its tolerance, openness and humanity, and its commitment to bringing individuals and cultures together for the sake of scientific progress for all.”

This year, 13 Iranian and 6 international researchers were awarded for their important scientific achievements.
