A1 SENSE Introductory Course, 19-23 April 2021 
National Open Science Festival, 11 February 2021
Editorial

Dear SENSE member,

Did you participate in the Climate Adaptation Summit last week in any way? This international online summit hosted by the Netherlands must have had quite some impact: 24 hours live stream CAS TV, 32 world leaders in the opening session, 18000 registrations for the conference platform, 50 articles produced by 18 international Youth Reporters, 130 side events and 425 million impressions on social media. And let's hope that the launched Adaptation Action Agenda will make our world more resilient to the effects of climate change.

If you feel inspired to create impact with your own research as well, take some time to think and talk about it with your colleagues. Recently submitted final reports for the SENSE A2 course show a wide variety of outreach efforts. Several events, workshops, a course, a seminar and a lecture have been organised around a PhD research topic. Others reported a research trip to China, an article for non-academic audience and a research video to create more impact. In the near future we will launch a page on our website dedicated to submitted A2 projects, to make SENSE impact incubator more visible. 

Another way to think about your research in a broader context in case you just started your PhD is to subscribe to the SENSE A1 course. During the course, you will discuss the need for interdisciplinary research and start to think about what role you would like to play as a scientist in solving environmental issues. The course will also be part personal leadership course, exploring what is important to you, and hence what broader skills and competencies you will want to develop during your PhD trajectory. And you will meet other PhD candidates with which you will share a lot of the same experiences with. 

Also outside the A1 course we encourage you to consider your needs for interaction with fellow scientists within the SENSE community. So please consider organising discussion groups, journal clubs and other ways by which you can interact, even online. If you have suggestions for SENSE wide discussion groups, let us know, so we can help to start them up.

Stay safe, inspired and connected.

Upcoming courses and discussion groups
A1 SENSE Introductory Course, 19-23 April 2021
In the week of 19 April 2021 - 23 April 2021, the next A1 course will be held online. The online meetings will take place in the mornings of that week. Part of the course is done via self-study. We will make that online part available a few weeks before the online meetings take place. We will also try and organise a physcial meeting day when the situation allows. This so you can also meet each other in person.

Upcoming Events (new announcements)
ESG Speaker Series: Earth System Law as a legal paradigm for the Anthropocene, 4 February 2021
How can we address the deepening socio-ecological crisis of the Anthropocene from a legal perspective? The first of the ESG Speaker Series of the year will take place on February 4th at 16.00 UTC + 1. Earth System Governance scholars will explore this question through a recently proposed legal paradigm: Earth System Law.

International conference on cohesive sediment transport, 14-17 September 2021
INTERCOH is the conference for research on cohesive sediments, which started in 1981 in Gainesville, Florida. In the last 40 years, INTERCOH has grown to the leading conference on cohesive sediments with a flourishing community. Since the first edition, the concept stayed the same: scientists and engineers share their passion for mud in an informal setting, with the aim to improving our understanding of the dynamics of cohesive sediment in the natural and built environment.
Abstract submission deadline: 31 January
