Geoscientists have a fundamental role in our societies.
They can promote a culture sensitive to the environment, correct information on natural risks, a more constructive relationship among the scientific community, mass media, population and policy-makers.
During the 34th International Geological Congress (IGC) held last August in Brisbane (Australia), I and other geoscientists decided to found the International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG): our website at http://www.iapg.geoethics.org.
The IAPG is an international, multidisciplinary, scientific platform for widening the debate on problems of Ethics applied to the geosciences. The IAPG aims to promote Geoethics values and principles through international cooperation, encouraging the involvement and debate of scientists all over the world.
The achievement of the IAPG objectives will lead above all to the involvement of the community in the idea of a common and shared "geo-heritage", to be considered as a cultural, educational and scientific value, as well as a social capital; to a cultural renewal in the way we perceive and relate to our Planet; to the sensitization towards the defense of life and the richness of the Earth, in all its forms.
We need your help: please, take into consideration to become an IAPG member. Membership is free of charge.
Please: visit the website (http://www.iapg.geoethics.org
For further information, don’t hesitate to send an email to: email@example.com.
Many thanks for your attention.
