Questionnaire “Geoethics: Why, what and to whom”

Geoethics deals with the awareness of geoscientists about the ethical and social implications of their work on the interaction between human activity and the Earth system, which has a great influence on the short-term quality of life of modern society and a critical impact on humanity’s long-term survival. The International Association for Promoting Geoethics, which was established in 2012, led in 2016 to the international recognition of the Cape Town Statement on Geoethics.
According to this statement, in addition to acquiring knowledge, geoscientists should serve society and adopt ethical actions in relation to a variety of research and application areas (e.g., resources, geological and landscape heritage, anthropogenic and natural hazards and risks, water resources and the environment).

We would appreciate if you could share with us your views on Geoethics and its integration into the training process and the practice of Earth scientists.

1st International Congress on the History of Science in Education

The 1st International Congress on the History of Science in Education is a joint organization of the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (UTAD), University of Porto (UP), University of Coimbra (UC) and University of S. Paulo (USP), and it will take place on May 30, 31 and June 1, 2019, at Polo 1 8of the School of Human and Social Sciences of UTAD, Portugal.

The 1ICHSE rises following the 1st Meeting of History of Science in Teaching and 2nd Meeting of History of Science in Teaching held at UTAD and UC, in 2015 and 2017, respectively, and it will take place every two years alternating between the universities involved.

The 1ICHSE aims to bring together researchers, professors and students, interested in the history and teaching of Biology, Geology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, as well as Educational Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Pharmacy, Biochemistry, Anthropology, Astronomy, Psychology, Economics, Sociology, Ecology, Molecular Biology and Nanosciences, among others, in a multi-centered and multidisciplinary debate. In addition to works focused on teaching, education, didactics and dissemination of sciences, 1ICHSE seeks to bring together reflections and studies of a more general, disciplinary or interdisciplinary nature, in the history of culture, technology and industry, as well as epistemological, historiographic, biographical or prosopographic. Other topics relevant to the history of science and teaching, such as gender studies, the teaching of science in a foreign language and, in general, the various aspects of the interactions between science, technology and the humanities are very important welcome to the dialogue space that 1ICHSE seeks to create.
