UNESCO Lecture Series: Earth Materials for a Sustainable and Thriving Society

26 January - 1 April 2021

The IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics is media partner of the Lecture Series, organized by UNESCO in collaboration with IUGS - International Union of Geological Sciences and iCRAG - Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences. 
Minerals and other Earth materials are a key component in the development of a sustainable global society, providing essential raw materials for technologies and economic growth while respecting the natural world. This programme of lectures, designed for a global audience, will provide diverse perspectives on Earth materials and their role in society. Leading natural scientists, social scientists, and educators will look at how Earth materials are critical to a sustainable future and how the minerals sector, adhering to best practices, can contribute to society in a socially and environmentally positive way.

The lectures will be delivered in webinar format by recognized global experts who will frame their presentations in the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Series will boost knowledge of Earth materials and contribute to better informed local, regional, and international discussions. The lectures will be freely accessible and will be archived for later online access.
