The Open Science Meeting (OSM) and the associated Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) are the premier scientific events of Past Global Changes (PAGES), a core project of Future Earth and a scientific partner of the World Climate Research Programme.

PAGES and the local organizing committee, Quaternary Terrestrial Environments group (Pyrenean Institute of Ecology-CSIC), welcome you to Spain.


The 3rd PAGES YSM will be held in Morillo de Tou (approximately 100km north of Zaragoza) from 7-9 May 2017.

The 5th PAGES OSM will be held in Zaragoza from 9-13 May 2017.

The theme of the OSM and YSM is "Global Challenges for our Common Future: a paleoscience perspective."

These meetings will fully reflect the PAGES structure and themes of climate, environment and humans, the strengthening of the connections between PAGES working groups and the increasing importance of an interdisciplinary approach.
