Along with the new Policy Priority Area for 2022-204, the EGU has also launched a Biodiversity Task Force that will lead the Union’s biodiversity initiatives and allow EGU to contribute to the EU’s upcoming biodiversity policies and activities!
Starting in 2022, this Task Force of 8-10 experts will oversee EGU’s biodiversity-related activities and contribute to specific EU policy activities. It is hoped that this Task Force will not only support EGU activities but also provide individuals within the group with the opportunity to gain experience working at the science-policy interface, gain new insights, and expand their network. If you’re interested in getting more involved with policy and work in a biodiversity-related area, we would really encourage you to apply!
