This Workshop is organized by GEVAS Network Argentina, Civil Association, in collaboration with IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics.

During the first hour of the workshop conveners will develop a clear understanding of the concepts of Volcanic Hazards, Geoethics ("Cape Town Statement on Geoethics" by IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics) and the objectives of GEVAS Network Argentina, Civil Association. In order to achieve that goal, they will have short presentations by colleagues covering various Social, Communication, Civil Protection and Volcano Monitoring projects currently underway. Following those presentations, a discussions will be developed.
During the second hour of the workshop, there will be four main breakout/discussion sessions, focused on 4 recent eruption case-studies, and a final general discussion. 

The aim of this workshop is to 1. Encourage the construction of links between society and geosciences from the awareness and training on best practices in the risk management facing volcanic eruptions, particularly in Latin American countries. 2. To perform basic scientific research aimed at generating new scientific knowledge and encouraging exchange with scientific organizations and institutions. 3. To promote interaction with medical, social and communicational sciences fostering transfer to society. 4. To collaborate with public and private agencies, institutions and actors involved in risk management. 5. To provide
links of technical support and collaborate to the management and monitoring of volcanoes on international borders. 6. To collaborate with civil protection institutions in order to assess and remediate the consequences of volcanic eruptions.
