Geoscience Education for Sustainable Development and Widening Participation
Co-Conveners: Jennifer A. Holden , Valerio Tramutoli 
 / Fri, 02 May, 08:30–10:00
 / Attendance Fri, 02 May, 10:30–12:00

Widening participation is a common term used by universities in engaging communities with research and encouraging young people to attend university. However, this session would like to consider widening participation of communities' involvement, use and impact on geoscience research and dissemination. Education for sustainable development is another common theme within university curriculums and is a particularly prevalent issue within geoscience subjects and yet ensuring research is put into practice involves engaging communities in order to ensure validity and relevance of sustainable development research and practice in a modern world. This session welcomes proposals from those who have applied their scientific research in geoscience subjects relevant to sustainable development to communities in an attempt to improve lives of local or international communities.
