Geosciences and geoethics: achieving UN Agenda 2030

Session description:
The United Nations 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the global strategy for building a better world. Yet, the Earth system knowledge and services required to support the SDGs have been largely ignored. This omission is compounded by the lack of geoscience in the SDG debate, even if geoscientists play a crucial role to implement the SDGs and orient society towards a more sustainable future (georisk mitigation, energy transition, prudent georesource management, adaptation to climate change, pollution reduction, enhancement of geoeducation and geoscience communication…). Moreover, the SDGs cannot be achieved without the Earth Science community acknowledging that geoethics is a key for contextualising practices capable to face the challenges of the global anthropogenic changes, including reducing social inequalities and promoting inclusivity. Conveners invite colleagues to submit abstracts focused on ethical and social issues related to geoscience research and practice, on how geosciences can contribute to the 17 SDGs, on best professional practices and strategies for serving society that should be adopted, in order to create conditions for a sustainable and inclusive development of communities. The more significant contributions will be considered for publication in a special issue.
