Geoethics at the XVI CGCh

THE CALL FOR ABSTRACT IS OPEN (deadline: 31 May 2023)

 

XVI Chilean Geological Congress "New challenges for an evolving territory”

Thematic Area 6 (AT6): Geosciences and Society

Session AT6-6 Geoethics: Experiences and case studies in Chile

Conveners: Luisa Pinto Lincoñir, Hernán Bobadilla Rodríguez

Description:

The role of geoethics is to investigate and reflect upon the values ​​and principles that support appropriate human interactions with the earth system. Geoethics is multidisciplinary and its field of analysis and action is defined by the need to identify common values ​​based on geoscientific knowledge, which is essential to recognize our role in the sustainability of the human-Earth system. There are 4 domains of interaction: individual, interpersonal, social and environmental. These domains involve different degrees of responsibility and a series of values ​​for the achievement of ethical actions to achieve the ideals of justice, consciousness, and respect for the Earth (https:/ /www.geoethics.org). 

This session welcomes contributions that highlight geoethical issues in terms of values ​​and principles in: (1) Dilemmas within the individual and/or interpersonal spheres of scientific and professional work; (2) Successful or unsuccessful cases, projects, studies, and activities with social or environmental impact in Chile (e.g., education, outreach, geoheritage, and geological risk management). Contributions accepted for this session will have the possibility of being included in the edition of a book on geoethics cases in Chile. This session is sponsored by the International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG).

Geoethics at the 6th WLF

THE CALL FOR ABSTRACT IS OPEN (deadline: 28 February 2023)​

6th World Landslide Forum "Landslide Science for Sustainable Development"

Theme 1 - Session 1.5

Ethical, social and cultural aspects/implications in landslide risk management

Conveners: Peter T. Bobrowsky, Irasema Alcántara-Ayala, Giuseppe Di Capua, Claudio Margottini, Silvia Peppoloni

Session description:

The science and practice of landslide research primarily aims to better understand the nature, distribution, and behavior of all types of landslides under a broad range of conditions and across the widest spectra of environments. Landslide research further aims to use this understanding to ensure that the health and well-being of individuals, communities, societies and the related socio-cultural structure, such as critical infrastructure, is secure through disaster risk management, including education, preparedness and best practices deployed in a timely and professional manner. By definition, landslide related studies are often subject to many factors that can negatively influence the impartiality, transparency, inclusivity, and standards of conduct of individuals. Today more than ever before, landslide researchers need to critically evaluate all stages of their work from site selection, project goals, participation, output dissemination, quality control, data sharing, authorship, accountability, and other issues based on a foundation of ethical values and practice. This session provides an opportunity to present and discuss a suite of topics, case studies and strategies that are germane to ethical landslide research. We encourage practitioners to submit contributions related to landslide ethics as examples include conflicts of interest, gender/ageism biases, questionable peer reviewing, breaches of standards, work safety avoidance, developed country favoritism, information hoarding, rumor impacts, social media abuse, limiting education, and respecting privacy are but a few examples of the many ethical issues that can impede the positive growth and progress in landslide studies.

This session is sponsored by the International Association for Promoting Geoethics – IAPG.

Geoethics at the AESC 2023

THE CALL FOR ABSTRACT IS OPEN (deadline: 1 March 2023)​

Australian Earth Sciences Convention (AESC) 2023

Session 

Geoethics to responsibly manage local and global challenges of our times

Conveners: Silvia Peppoloni, Peter T. Bobrowsky, John Ludden, Sandra Villacorta Chambi

Session co-organized by: IAPG and IUGS.

Session description: Geoscience knowledge and expertise are essential to address a wide range of the most pressing social-environmental concerns, inform decision-making, and guide education at all levels. All branches of geosciences have cultural, social and ethical implications. Hence, geoscientists face ethical issues in their professional and civic roles. Geoscientists are becoming increasingly aware of their ethical responsibilities to serve society and foster public trust in geosciences. Geoethics aims to provide a common framework to responsibly manage questions such as geo-resources, geological risks, pollution, geoheritage, as well as geoscience-society-policy interaction and relationships with Indigenous communities. This session aims to nourish the discussion on appropriate behaviours and practices, also through case-studies, wherever human activities interact with the Earth system.

This session is included in the theme: Critical role of geoscience in Australia's future

MinerLima 2022

This is the 8th edition of the International Minerals and Rocks Exhibition in Lima (Peru), organized by IAPG-Peru.

MinerLima is an event to disseminate the Peruvian mineralogical heritage, through an exhibition of minerals and rocks, short courses, conferences and workshops (for children and the general public), geological excursions and even more. The most important goal of this event is to educate the Peruvian citizens on geoscience as well as to create links between the geoscience community and society.
MinerLima is organized by IAPG-Peru at the Parque Alfredo Salazar, Miraflores, Lima. Everybody is invited to be part of this event. The entrance is free.
After the official inauguration of MinerLima 2022 on 10 June 2022, conferences on geoethics, deontology in geosciences, geology, crystallography, petrology, litho-geochemistry, paleontology have been held by experts, among them the event "The new Socio-environmental Challenges in Las Bambas Mining" ("Los nuevos Retos Socio-ambientales en la Minera Las Bambas", in Spanish) held on 30 September 2022 at Museo de Minerales Andrés del Castillo in Lima. 
In addition, with the support of the IAPG-Peru student chapters, workshops and competitions for school children on the Universe, volcanoes, earthquakes, mass movements, minerals and the identification of rocks have been organized. The have already been studied, soon the theme will include. Students were also involved in choosing the mascot of MinerLima 2022 through a public contest.
Among the other activities planned there is a field trip that will be announced on the official Facebook page of the “Feria Internacional de Minerales de Lima”: https://www.facebook.com/feriainternacionalmineraleslima.

Geoethics at the GeoMinKöln 2022

Cologne (Germany)

Session 10.2 "Geoethics – fostering ethical perspectives in Geosciences"

Conveners: Dominic Hildebrandt (IAPG-Germany co-coordinator), Simon Schneider (IAPG-Germany co-coordinator), Martin Bohle (IAPG Board of Experts)

Session description: Geoethics is a dynamically evolving concept framing various kinds of ethical aspects of Geoscience activities. As an expression of critical thinking and taking responsibility, Geoethics is fundamental to all kinds of Geoscience subdisciplines, however raising different types of questions and problems depending on the specific context. Many of these are intimately linked to specialties of our discipline, e.g. its historically male-dominated character as well as a strong focus on field work. With this session we aim to provide a platform for current works featuring critical analysis of 1) geoscience history and its implications, 2) intra-scientific issues such as gender inequalities or racism, 3) working methods and their implications for the environment, research objects and local communities, 4) geoscientists' work at the interface to society, politics and other stakeholders including geocommunication and geoeducation. We encourage you to submit your work to our session even if your specific topic is not covered above, but has a geoethical dimension.

IAPG-Germany for Fridays at the Museum

This event (in German) is organized by GeoForum of LMU Munich. This event is moderated by Simon Schneider (IAPG-Germany co-coordinator). Claudia Antratschke (Head of Department Collections and Research at the Landesmuseum Hannover) provides insight into how the context of finding and obtaining artifacts and specimens in the geosciences needs to be rethought. Artifacts - for example, in paleontology - have sometimes been taken from sites without taking into account local communities and their perceptions of nature.
