A new book is on track:
"Geoethics: Status and Future Perspectives"
Chapters are now available as online version

We are glad to inform that we are close to publication of a new book on geoethics with the Geological Society of London (GSL).

The book is entitled "Geoethics: Status and Future Perspectives", edited by Giuseppe Di Capua, Peter Bobrowsky, Susan Kieffer, and Cindy Palinkas, and dedicated to Jan Boon.

Co-editors state that "This book is a significant step forward in the development of geoethical thinking, its theoretical foundations and practical applications. Geoethics is now ready to be introduced outside the geoscience community as a platform for global ethics addressing anthropogenic changes and the responsible interaction between humans and the Earth system."

The book is expected to be published as hard copy in April, but chapters are already available online

This book is an initiative of the IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics and is published under the agreement between GSL and the IUGS - International Union of Geological Sciences.
