LINDA GUNDERSEN AWARDED WITH THE GEOETHICS MEDAL 2019

We are pleased to inform that the Geoethics Medal 2019 of the IAPG has been awarded to Linda Gundersen, scientist emeritus at the U.S. Geological Survey, "for her unselfish work and scholarly contributions in leading the advancement in scientific integrity and professional ethics in the geosciences. Gundersen’s transformative work across governmental, academic, non-profit, and private institutions has made her one of the world’s leading authorities in “geoethical” scholarship, policy and practice. Linda Gundersen was one of the early leaders in proactively promoting what is now called geoethics. She created and was first Director of the USGS Office of Science Quality and Integrity, implementing bureau-wide programs in scientific integrity, ethics, publication, research excellence, post-doctoral fellows, youth internships, education, and Tribal relations. Since retiring in 2012 she has dedicated her time to promoting scientific integrity, ethics, and diversity in the geosciences, including leading and/or influencing major ethics policy revisions at the American Geophysical Union, the American Geosciences Institute, The Geological Society of America, and the U.S. National Academies of Sciences. Linda sets the example for highest standard of geoethics service, practice, and scholarly excellence."

International Geoethics Day 2019: Seed Today... for the future!

17 October 2019

Hashtag: #geoethicsday2019

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”.

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

"For his valuable contribution in promoting Earth Sciences in society by introducing innovative methods and tools to teaching, aiming at the proactive involvement of end-users based on developing their critical thinking and observational scientific approaches.
Chris King teaches (geo)scientific methods and geological knowledge in an easy, attractive and passionate way, through which he offers clear and careful explanations of geological observations without trivializing the content whilst always paying great attention to the quality of the scientific discourse. 
His efforts in promoting geoeducation are much more than a mission to disseminate Earth Sciences knowledge among students and the general public: Chris King is an excellent example of a geologist who feels and practices his geological activity as a geoethical duty towards society.

THE GEOETHICAL PROMISE IN THE CEREMONY OF THE GEOLOGICAL MASTER DEGREE IN GEOLOGY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NODENA AND REGGIO EMILIA (ITALY), 19 JULY 2018

7 December 2018

As announced by Silvia Peppoloni (IAPG Secretary General) at the 72nd IUGS EC meeting in Potsdam (Germany) on 22-26 January 2018, the “Geoethical Promise” has been included as official declaration during the ceremony for the geological master degree in the Italian Universities, thanks to the cooperation of the IAPG-Italy and the Italian Geological Society.

 

On 19 July 2018, the "Geoethical Promise" was read at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE) during the cerimony of the master degree in geology.

This was a memorable event! We hope the "Geoethical Promise" will be adopted in many Universities all over the world!

 

We remind you that the "Geoethical Promise" (avalilable in 35 languages) is included in the "Cape Town Statement on Geoethics", that is supported by 20 geoscience organizations.

Geoethical_Promise_parchment_Italian.PNG

Silvia Peppoloni said that "... Who in these years has worked hard with me to achieve this result can understand the emotion that I have felt looking at these images, and also the joy and the awareness of having left a mark in the history of geosciences. ​I can only thank all those who have helped me, and in particular Prof. Sandra Piacente and Prof. Elisabetta Erba, not by chance two women: their sensitivity and support have made possible the officialization of this symbolic act, full of meaning for those like me who believe in the ethical and social value of our profession as geologists, in the cultural and educational power of our beloved geo-disciplines ..."

The Cape Town Statement on Geoethics is now available in 35 languages: 

Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Belarusian, Bengali, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Nepali, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Sepedi, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Tamil, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu.

Translations have been possible thanks to a great job done by IAPG officers, members, and followers. The IAPG pubblication that collects all the translations is for free download and and can be cited as follows:

INTERNATIONAL GEOETHICS DAY 2018
25 October 2018

25 October 2018

The IAPG  will celebrate the 2nd International Geoethics Day on 18 October 2018 .

As you know, this initiative was born in 2017 with the aim to raise the awareness of the geoscience community and society about the importance of geoethics.

The geoethics day falls during the Earth Science Week and close to the Global Ethics Day, and will be the occasion to strongly reaffirm the geoethical values in which we believe and that are the foundations of the IAPG.

Download the leaflet with the incipit of a statement: "geoethics is..."
 

Please, complete the sentence with one word, the word that you feel more appropriate, print the leaflet and take a picture of you with the leaflet in your hand well in evidence.

Finally, during the day of 18 October (not before!), post your picture on facebook and/or twitter and/or Linkedin, and use the hashtag: #geoethicsday2018

FORAM 18 PILOT EVENT ON RAW MATERIALS GOVERNANCE

The FORAM 18 pilot event on raw materials governance, scheduled on 27th June 2018 in Nancy (France), marks an important deliverable and milestone of the EU-funded project FORAM. It is a crucial step in this stakeholder process. Its main purpose is to deepen the insights from the dialogue by means of face-to-face discussions, build connections between people and create or strengthen ownership for improving global cooperation. The event will be an excellent opportunity for networking, for information exchange and for reaching out to the media and the public about the sense of urgency for the issues at stake. The IAPG has been invited to join the FORAM 18 pilot event. David Ovadia (IAPG-UK coordinator) will be representing the IAPG in this event. David is a British geologist with extensive experience in research, academia, geological surveys and the mining industry. He served as the Director of the British Geological Survey’s International Division until 2011.​

STEPS TO IMPROVE AWARENESS OF GEOETHICS IN YOUR DEPARTMENT
(by Vincent Cronin, co-coordinator of IAPG-USA)

"I was offered the opportunity to address the 2017 Workshop for Heads and Chairs of Earth and Space Sciences Departments at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in New Orleans last week (https://serc.carleton.edu/departments/heads-chairs17/index.html).

I have posted the substance of my brief presentation about "steps to improve awareness of geoethics in your department" at http://croninprojects.org/Ethics-AGU2017/index.htm. That page has a number of links to resources that you might find interesting or useful. 

I would be interested in having you read through the materials I have posted there, think about how you can help move this work forward, and then share your ideas, suggestions, and links to useful applied-ethics resources.   You can post your contributions to IAPG (http://www.geoethics.org) directly or through its social media outlets (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.).  This should be a shared effort to facilitate the ethical development of our geoscience community.

Facilitating the development of ethical geoscientists is the responsibility of all of us".
