This call of the International Science Council (ISC) is addressed to scientists who are interested in shaping UN policy making, e.g. as contributors to statements on behalf of the international scientific community, to virtual and in-person panels for policy-making audiences or as speakers in high-level debates.
In the UN system (President of the General Assembly, Secretariat, Science and Technology Major Group), the ISC established itself as "place to go to" for scientific expertise. To more effectively provide timely inputs on issues that are prominent on the UN agenda, the ISC is seeking for names of experts around 20 topics, on which it expects being called upon during 2024, such as foresight, science diplomacy, global digital cooperation, several SDGs, etc.
