The YES Network has been an ESM Partner since its onset in 2011. Like ESM, the YES Network has been an offspring of the UN-proclaimed International Year of Planet Earth and their 5th International Conference in Berlin marked its 10 years existence. The Yes Network has over 5000 members since. The title of this Berlin Conference, hosted by and held in the premises of the Freie Universität, was ROCKING EARTH’S FUTURE.
The Conference consisted of oral and poster presentations, and brief ‘elevator pitches’. The Peking Natural Science Organisation (PNSO), also an ESM Partner was present in the Conference as well by a booth. In that booth PNSO also introduced Chinese car-producer BAW, that is currently developing a new and innovative car type: ‘Geoscientist’. A keynote lecture was given by ESM and another Session was chaired.
