|Abstract: ||The International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG: http://www.geoethics.org) was founded on August
2012 to unite global geoscientists to raise the awareness of the scientific community regarding the importance of
the ethical, social and cultural implications of geoscience research, education, and practice.
IAPG is an international, multidisciplinary and scientific platform for discussion on ethical problems and dilemmas
in Earth Sciences, promoting geoethical themes through scientific publications and conferences, strengthening the
research base on geoethics, and focusing on case-studies as models for the development of effective and operative
IAPG is legally recognized as a not-for-profit organization. It is a non-governmental, non-political, non-party institution,
at all times free from racial, gender, religious or national prejudices. Its network continues to grow with
more than 900 members in 103 countries, including 20 national sections. IAPG operates exclusively through donations
and personal funds of its members.
The results achieved since inception have been recognized by numerous international organizations. In particular,
IAPG has obtained the status of affiliated organization by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS),
American Geosciences Institute (AGI), Geological Society of America (GSA), and the Geological Society of
London (GSL). IAPG has enlarged its official relationships also through agreements on collaboration with other
organizations, such as the American Geophysical Union (AGU), EuroGeoSurveys (EGS), European Federation
of Geologists (EFG), Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG), International Geoscience
Education Organisation (IGEO), African Association of Women in Geosciences (AAWG), and others.
IAPG considers publications as an indispensable activity to strengthen geoethics from a scientific point of view,
so members are active in the publication of articles and editing of books on Geoethics with a peer-review process.
Moreover, IAPG organizes sessions/symposia on geoethics in national and international congresses, thus encouraging
a wide participation of the scientific community in the discussion on geoethical topics.
This presentation provides an update on new results and numerous ongoing activities carried out by the IAPG with
a brief look to future initiatives.|
