National sections

The IAPG network can count on 28 national sections on 5 continents.
The national sections are points of aggregation for colleagues in a country. Their mission is to coordinate efforts in promoting Geoethics and enlarging the IAPG network in the country, by encouraging the participation of geoscientists in their activities on the basis of equal opportunities and favouring the exchange of information among its members through newsletters, publications or other suitable tools such as a website and social networks.
