The Forum of Young Scholars in Sustainability is an interdisciplinary network for young researchers at NTNU working with sustainability in their research. 

Considering the interdisciplinary nature and extent of sustainability, it is necessary to develop a broader and multidimensional network of researchers to conceptualize the sustainable solutions for the better world. Recognizing this niche of a common platform for young researchers, NTNU Sustainability presents the Forum of Young Scholars in Sustainability (FYSS).

The purpose of FYSS is to share ideas and build interdisciplinary network among the young researchers of NTNU working in close relation to sustainability in their research. NTNU Sustainability envisages that such platform will build creative, constructive and critical values among researchers and pave a way to promote Knowledge for Change.
