The perspective of students and young professionals is important to bring into play for a nuanced and diverse understanding of the challenges we face and how we design solutions for it. That is why we’ve put focus on involving students & young professionals through sessions curated by students and you can find a range of “Next Gen” sessions in the official programme.
You can also get involved in competitions and activities for students. Read more below.
To create sessions curated by students and young professionals, we work with our local Next Gen Committee. The purpose of the committee is to ensure that students play a role in the development of the congress. During 2022 we met and developed sessions, and it’s still a work in progress. Learn more about the committee members below.
In the overall programme we focus on representing young voices, bringing students and young professionals on stage. The perspectives of students and young professionals are important to bring into play for a nuanced understanding of the challenges we face and how we design solutions for it.
