Next month this year’s Future Earth’s Young Scientists Networking Conference on Integrated Science will be held at Villa Vigoni Italy. The theme of this year’s conference is around notions of ecosystems services, human wellbeing and the green economy. The conference puts together 30 young scientists with around 10 senior scientists. In lead up to the conference in May, we asked our senior scientists for 10 must-see youtube videos on the green economy.
