The Young Scholars Committee aims to encourage participation by and harness ideas from younger members (under 40 years) to ensure the sustainability of this important Commission into the future. All international scholars with a research interest in the following topics are invited to both participate in meetings and suggest new initiatives for consideration:

.   Interdependent urban systems;

.   Change and conflict within cities;

.   Sustainability and social justice.


The Committee will communicate electronically with members on a regular basis and will meet the day before each annual meeting to discuss procedures and new initiatives.
