IAPG is partner of GeoSoc 2019

International Conference on Geoscience for Society
14 - 17 March 2019
Segunbagicha, Dhaka (Bangladesh)

Development of urbanization, industrialization and civilization as a whole depend on earth resources like mineral, water and soil. These resources come from earth's components- atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere - the Earth System Science. But any change of these components causes geo-hazards which may even ruin the entire civilization. These all are subject matters of geosciences or earth sciences. Geosciences is an intuitive and constantly changing science, and therefore geoscientists must have up to date knowledge of this field and a good concept of earth's components, earth resources and geo-hazards to discover hidden resources, utilize those resources properly and deal with hazardous impacts on society efficiently. This is possible by carrying out extensive research on these areas and applying the research findings for the welfare of the society. So, the objectives of GeoSoc-2019 are as usual to gather innovative ideas and information from geoscientists involved worldwide with earth and earth resources, development activities, geo-hazard, environmental ecosystems and geoeducation. 

Themes: Geoscience Education, Geo-Resources, Energy and Mineral based Industries, Geosciences in Developing Activities and Disaster Risk Reduction, Women in Geosciences.

IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics is partner geoscience organization of GeoSoc 2019.

"The current global challenges facing our human communities require geoscientists increasingly prepared and aware of their responsibilities towards society and the environment. The "Geology for Society" conference is an indispensable opportunity to share and promote the ethical, social and cultural values that underlie and give sense to our activity as geoscientists. The IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics strongly believes in those values and in the primary duty of geoscientists to put their knowledge at disposal of others, to better serve society, to protect the environment, to defend populations from natural risks, to assure the sustainable development for future generations." (Silvia Peppoloni, IAPG Secretary General)
