The Young Earth Scientists (YES) Network is an association of early-career geoscientists who are primarily under the age of 35 years from universities, geoscience organizations and companies from across the world (www.networkyes.org). The YES Network was formed as result of the International Year of Planet Earth in 2007 under the patronage of UNESCO. YES Congress history began in 2009, when the first event took place at the China University ofGeosciences in Beijing, China. The second YES Congress was convened in 2012 in Brisbane, Australia, in conjunction with the 34th International Geological Congress (IGC). The special issue introduced here contains some of the contributions presented at the 3rd YES Congress, held at the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from 11th to 14th August 2014. This meeting was developed in conjunction with the 25th Colloquium of African Geology (CAG25).
