Geoscience and Society Summit 18-21 March 2019, Stockholm, Sweden

  • 1.  Geoscience and Society Summit 18-21 March 2019, Stockholm, Sweden

    The purpose of this meeting is to bring together scientists and administrators from many sectors to identify bridges with the geosciences that will allow us to enhance international and intercultural collaboration.  We hope to provide answers to these two questions:

    • What specific actions can this group of diverse stakeholders take now to improve collaboration, increase transparency, and provide a framework on how the geosciences can benefit the public good?
    • Can we structure a model of how development/re-development in the geosciences can be facilitated that is applicable to many situations and locations and that adequately addresses human health, social justice, environmental health, and natural resource issues?

    The intent of the meeting is to bring together people who can share their insight and experiences to cultivate innovative solutions. We will meet, share, and interact in an Idea Expo. An environment where everyone can present a poster, which highlights relevant case studies, creative solutions, or informative background information. For this meeting, we are breaking away from the traditional model of scientific presentations and instead using the Idea Expo and workshops to capitalize on the creative expertise in the room and foster conversations and strategies.

    As a program committee member committed to bringing more community leaders to this event, I'm sharing this with your network in the hopes that you and AIPSS members might be interested in joining. Early registration has recently been extended to 30 January 2019.
