IAPG symposium on geoethics at the 36th IGC:

Geoethics: Ethical, Social and 
Cultural Aspects in Geosciences

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
(deadline: 31 October 2019)


The 36th IGC - International Geological Congress will be held in Delhi (India) from 2 to 8 March 2020.

IAPG is organizing the Symposium 1.7,  entitled "Geoethics: Ethical, Social and Cultural Aspects in Geosciences" and chaired by Silvia Peppoloni (silvia.peppoloni@ingv.it) (Italy), Nic Bilham (UK), Peter T. Bobrowsky (Canada), Martin Bohle (Belgium), Vincent S. Cronin (USA), Giuseppe Di Capua (Italy), within the Theme 1 "Geoscience for Society".


Description of the Symposium 1.7 by IAPG:


All branches of geosciences have ethical, social and cultural implications. Geoethics aims to provide a common framework for these concerns, and to discuss on the appropriate behaviors and practices, wherever human activities interact with the Earth system.

The spectrum of topics this symposium aims to deal with includes:

i) ethical and social problems related to management of land, coasts and open oceans,
ii) socio-environmentally sustainable supplies of energy and geo-resources, 
iii) pollution and its impact, 
iv) resilience of society related to natural-anthropogenic hazards, and risk mitigation strategies, 
v) geoscience communication and education, 
vi) culture and value of geodiversity, geoheritage, geoparks, 
vii) role of geosciences in socio-economic development regardless of countries' wealth while respecting cultures, traditions and local development paths, and in promoting peace, sustainable development and intercultural exchange. 

Acknowledging the role of Geoscientists at the service of society, this symposium, proposed by IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics (http://www.geoethics.org), aims to develop ethical and social discussion on following topics, including case-studies: 

a) Geoethics in natural-anthropogenic risk management, 
b) Ethical aspects of geoscience education and communication,
c) Geoethics for responsible use of geo-resources, 
d) Research integrity and professional deontology in geosciences, 
e) Geoethics in addressing global societal challenges.

The abstract submission is open (deadline: 31 October 2019):

International Geoethics Day 2019

"Seed Today... for the Future"

17 October 2019

hashtag: #geoethicsday2019

website: http://www.geoethics.org/geoethics-day


Soil, air and water pollution, land degradation, biodiversity loss, global warming, are among the main threats for human communities.

The International Geoethics Day 2019 aims to raise people's awareness and responsibility on anthropogenic global changes, trying to change the way in which we relates to our planet.

In order to celebrate the 3rd edition of the International Geoethics Day we ask you to:
  1. seed or plant something in the ground (trees, flowers, plants, or shrubs);
  2. use the IAPG label to tag what you have planted (possibly, print it on recycled paper or use the other side of an already printed sheet);
  3. take a photo and post it on social networks, by using the hashtag "#geoethicsday2019".
In the IAPG label you find this sentence: "This is the contribution of the IAPG to make better our future on Earth".


Use this label to tag your plant.



This event is included in the Earth Science Week 2019 and the Global Ethics Day 2019.
