The Roots of a Geological Union for the
Future of the Earth
The International Commission on the History of Geological Sciences (INHIGEO) in collaboration with the IUGS, is hosting an informative and lively event charting the evolution of the the International Geological Congress (IGC), the birth of the IUGS and the continuing bond with UNESCO. Experts will discuss themes of key IGC and how these reflect societies Earth Resource focuses at these points in history. The expert panel will then reflect and discuss what the role of geoscience unions is, and could be, in 2022 and beyond. This event is free to attend and we welcome experts and no-experts alike. Conversations from this event will link to events happening later on in the IUGS Earth Sciences Festival, the following week 10-15th October.
We hope you will join us for these important conversations.
The mission of the INHIGEO is to promote studies in the history of geological disciplines.
In so doing, the Commission endeavours to stimulate and coordinate the activities of regional, national, and international organizations having shared purposes. The Commission also works to foster the publication of individual and collective works that illuminate the history of the geological sciences.
