Pisa (Italy), 17th September 2013

The IX Italian Forum of Earth Sciences in Pisa will be the scene of a round table on Geoethics.
The event will be an occasion of debate between representatives of scientific community, political institutions and the world of mass media, on the role played by each of the "actors" involved in the defense against natural hazards, and at the same time, a moment for a reflection on the need to rediscover the value of the land as a founding element of the community identity and a resource to protect, being aware of the individual and social responsibility that this involves.
