Silvia Peppoloni (INGV Researcher, IAPG Secretary General, Chair of the IUGS Commission on Geoethics) is the Chairholder.

The CIPSH Chair on Geoethics will expand and reinforce an international research network of institutions, non-governmental organizations, and scholars to foster interdisciplinary initiatives for bridging geosciences, humanities, and social sciences through geoethics, with the goal of continuing to create a geoethical framework for addressing the complexity of ecological crises and contributing to pursue the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

The long-term objective is to strengthen an already existing international community of scholars with different disciplinary background dealing with geoethics and to involve other individuals and institutions/organizations in this international network in order to deepen discussions about geoethics and to improve its theoretical structure and practical applications in a wide range of disciplines, favouring a cross disciplinary fertilization.

The CIPSH Chair on Geoethics is funded by the INGV and is supported by:

  • Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV)

  • International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS)

  • International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG)

  • AGU Ethics and Equity Center – American Geophysical Union
