Great News:
The IAPG Early Career Scientists Team (ECST) 
is now in charge!

The IAPG considers the ESCT as its outpost and one of its greater strengths. The IAPG believes that early career and young scientists can indicate needs and expectations on the future of geosciences. They can help to give a perspective updated and adhering to the new challenges that geoscientists have to face. They can also report new instances from the society, identifying the potential innovative contributions that geosciences can provide to society.

The ECST has the following goals:

1) Promoting geoethics and the IAPG, with a special target focused on younger and early career scientists/professionals;

2) Working as the interface between IAPG and young/early career scientists' organizations and groups.

3) Starting to self-train a group of geoscientists that would be able to bring the reins of the IAPG in the future and capable to continue to develop the geoethical thinking, by following multi- and transdisciplinary approaches.

The ECST board is formed by:

- Daniel De Miguel (Spain) - Spokeperson
- Ndivhuwo Cecilia Mukosi (South Africa)
- Sebastian Handl (Austria)
- Cristina Toma (Romania)
- Cesar Oboni (Canada)
- Bárbara Zambelli (Brazil)
- Jonathan Rizzi (Italy/Norway)
- Alexandra Cardoso (Portugal)

The IAPG thanks Flavia Strani (Sapienza University of Rome, Italy) to have drawn the ECST logo.
