The Planet under Pressure conference provided opportunities for Youth and Young Scientists and Researchers to meet up during the conference, both physically through organised activities at the ExCeL conference venue, through partnership with 150 Science and Technology Centres across the world, and virtually through viewing the conference on-line and interacting through the Young Scientists/Youth Forum.
On Day 1 of the conference, a group of high school students taking part in the UK Voice of Youth Project, gave a Plenary Presentation session and submitted 10 questions to the conference to be considered.
Throughout the Planet Under Pressure conference, a group of young scientists and researcher delegates scheduled meetings, created a blog, and developed the Planet Under Pressure Young Delegate Statement that was presented in the closing plenary session on Day 4 by one of the group representatives Pamela Collins.
Several young scientists and researchers were also invited to take part as members to the plenary panel sessions and also to chair, convene, and present breakout sessions. Many more young scientists, researchers, and professionals from a variety of sustainably focused disciplines including business and policy attended as delegates at the venue and viewed the sessions live on the Internet.
