The Year of Sustainability
2022 will mark the final of the Society’s themed years, as the Year of Sustainability
2022 will mark the final of the Society’s themed years, as the Year of Sustainability. Throughout the year, the Society will explore the role geoscientists have to play in delivering the energy transition and meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through a variety of research conferences, lectures and education and outreach activities.
Many of the activities will take place under the banner of the Society’s new scientific themes on the Energy Transition and Geohazards, Geoengineering and Georesilience. Through these themes, we will explore the responsible management and extraction of natural resources, such as minerals and water, as well as the risks posed by natural hazards. The programme will bring together scientists, community leaders and policy makers to ensure that economic development is underpinned by environmental stewardship and empowered communities.
