The UK Young Academy is now accepting applications for its first members. If you are in the early stages of your career and are passionate about making societal change and contributing to global debate, this is a rewarding opportunity to meet like-minded peers and shape the first few years of this new professional organisation.    

Our How to apply webinar gave attendees the chance to find out more about what the UK Young Academy is and how you can apply for membership. The sessions included experiences from other global Young Academy members and an overview of the application process.
