<P>8 YOUNG INTERNATIONAL SCIENTISTS WEIGH IN ON THE QUESTION: HOW CAN YOUNG SCIENTISTS INFLUENCE AND SHAPE SCIENCE POLICY IN THEIR HOMES AND ACROSS THE GLOBE? Although policy making is generally thought to be the responsibility of experienced and senior bureaucrats, the voice of the younger gener- ation and, in particular, the voice of early-career scientists is valuable to consider. History has repeatedly been shaped as the result of the actions of youth. Young people are among the creators of the great religions, the founders of civilizations, the heroes of our republics, DQGWKHLQQRYDWRUVLQWKH?HOGVRIDUWVFLHQFHDQGWHFKQRORJ\\7DNH Albert Einstein, who at the age of 37, published the general theory of relativity.

In order to amplify their voice in the public debate, it is necessary for early-career scientists to communicate with policy makers as well as with the media. This must occur at a national level, where these young scientists can form new policy-making bodies and interact with existing ones, and, at a global level, where internationally recognized DQGUHVSHFWHGRUJDQLDWLRQVFDQSURYLGHDSODWIRUPIRULQ?XHQFH We, as a group of early-career scientists, would like to highlight some of the existing and prospective mechanisms that we believe have the JUHDWHVWSRWHQWLDOYDOXHWRKHOSRXUSHHUVLQ?XHQFHORFDODQGJOREDO science policy.

Professional societies, nongovernmental organizations, and senior scientists can help drive younger scien- tists to take a more active role in the policy-making process. Senior scientists, in particular, can provide practical guidance for younger generations of scientists by demonstrating the ethical applications of policy as well as by leveraging their research to help form new evidence-based policy.
