What is Geoethics?

Geoethics consists of the research and reflection on those values upon which to base appropriate behaviours and practices where human activities intersect the Geosphere.

Geoethics deals with the ethical, social and cultural implications of geological research and practice, providing a point of intersection for Geosciences, Sociology and Philosophy.

Geoethics represents an opportunity for Geoscientists to become more conscious of their social role and responsibilities in conducting their activity.

Geoethics is a tool to influence the awareness of society regarding problems related to geo-resources and geo-environment.
