Geoethics: from geoscience professional development to responsible citizenship

(by David Mogk, Montana State University, USA; IAPG Board of Experts for Geo-education and Teaching Geoethics)

Geoethics is an essential foundation for professional development of all geoscientists. The scope of Geoethics includes consideration of personal, professional, societal and planetary domains. Geoethics deals with the responsible conduct of science and the responsible conduct of scientists. This introduction will consider the virtues of appropriate use of power, trust, respect responsibility and justice as these impact the ways in which we must work together to create a safe, inclusive and productive geoscience profession, and to apply our science in service to society.

Geoethics as a framework for responsible production and consumption of mineral resources: roles for geoscientists, stakeholders and citizens

(by Nic Bilham, Camborne School of Mines, United Kingdom; IAPG Continental Coordinator for Europe)

Addressing the global challenges expressed in the UN Sustainable Development Goals will depend on a vast range of mined raw materials.  It is vital that we find, extract, manage and use these in a responsible way, minimising environmental and social harm, and sharing the benefits we derive from them equitably.  In this talk, I explore how geoethics can be mobilised as a framework for all those with a part to play in this shared mission, including geoscientists, other professionals in the mining sector and across mineral value chains, politicians and citizens.
