Happy International Geoethics Day 2023


Logo of WOMEESA network

Today we celebrate the 7th edition of the International Geoethics Day.


The theme of this year is "fostering the importance of geosciences for society".

Geoscientists’ knowledge and expertise are essential to address many of the most urgent global problems, to inform decision-making, and to guide education at all levels. Geosciences provide society knowledge and tools to discuss, shape, and implement solutions to local, regional and global socio-environmental problems. Geoethics fosters the importance of geosciences for contributing to create a more sustainable and just society.
