- Why were they selected to be authors? An initial group of them was selected because they worked before on the main GEO-6 report as GEO-6 fellows. GEO-6 fellows were selected through an official nomination process and others were recommended by the Coordinating Lead Authors and approved by the Scientific Advisory Panel from the main GEO-6 report. Other authors were nominated because of their expertise, collaboration within the regional GEO for Youth processes and recommendation by previous authors or members of the advisory bodies.
