SC2.1

At EGU2019 we successfully presented a similar SC with a great number of participants. For the next venue, we kept the main rationale and expanded the aims. As the proper and deep education on ethical issues in geosciences has been evolving in recent times, although not as quickly and deeply as necessary, we want to keep the activity also in 2020. Many of the professionals dedicated to Earth Sciences have been not in touch with such new concepts and tendencies as the concept of Geoethics. Geoethics is the research and reflection on the values which underpin appropriate behaviors and practices, wherever human activities interact with the Earth system. Geoethics provides a framework from which to define ethical professional behaviors in both geosciences and engineering and to determine how these should be put into practice for the benefit of society and the environment. The Short Course goes is directed towards introducing and training geoscientists in those new concepts and ideas as well as exposing the future perspectives of this field. After completing this course, participants will know the basic principles of ethics and how these lead to geoethics, will be aware of the dilemmas involved in making geoethical decisions, will have gained some experience in taking a geoethical approach to real-world cases and will have an initial view regarding the future perspectives of Geoethics. We kindly request two consecutive time blocks (1 hour 45 minutes each). They cannot be the same days/time of our own IAPG regular oral and poster sessions (two planned for 2020) and on the last EGU day (Friday). It can be scheduled, also, for late sessions on consecutive days (after 19:00 hs or 18:30 hs). A reduced number of lecturers will be selected among the members of IAPG with a strong background on SC's themes and participating at EGU2020.
