Slides, posters and photogallery 
of the IAPG session on geoethics at EGU 2017

Geoethics is a well-established presence within the EGU General Assemblies. Starting from the first session in 2012, the interest in ethical and social issues related to geosciences has rapidly grown, years after years the spectrum of the treated topics has become wider. 

This year in the session program we have had 12 orals and 22 posters, a great success considering the novelty of the abstract fee introduced also for the Outreach, Education, and Media sessions.

Presentations have been authored by 75 colleagues from 19 countries (Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Senegal, Switzerland, Tanzania, United Kingdom, USA).

Presentations have covered a wide spectrum of geoethical issues, including theoretical aspects of geoethics, geoscience professionalism, ethical implications in geoscience communication, information, education, geo-hazards and data management, mining, geoparks, ocean science, geo-archeology, forensic geology, data science policies, citizen science.
