South African Young Academy of Science

Launched in 2011 by Mr. Derek Hanekom, Minister of Science and Technology, the South African Young Academy of Science (SAYAS) seeks to cultivate mentorship and opportunity for young scientists that will address "national and global challenges facing society." This website contains a wealth of resources, broken down into a few different pages. On the Projects page, readers will find the SAYAS Blog, which features posts such as "A Letter from 2050" where students write to their future selves. The News page allows visitors to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements and opportunities from the Committee. Next, on the Lindau page, readers can learn about the Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting, an annual conference that brings together young scientists across many different disciplines. Finally, on the Publications page, readers can find reports such as "Policy Direction Eradication of Hunger and Achievement of Food Security," and "Science and (Un)Certainty: Exploring Science, Knowledge Production, Communication and Uptake in a Post-Truth World." Readers may also want to check the Home page for access to SAYAS's recent Twitter posts and Calendar.
