Dear colleagues, IAGETH is happy to announce the celebration of the 4th edition of the Day of Earth Sciences in Africa and Middle East (DESAME). The African Association of Women in Geosciences and the African Geoparks Network are proclaiming the 20th March as a Day of Earth Science in Africa and Middle East, DESAME”. The day aims to increase the awareness about the role that earth scientists could play to help to build a peaceful, healthier and wealthier continent. First celebrated in 2013, DESAME is celebrated in 2016, under the thematic “Geoethics, Geoheritage, Georesources and Geoenvironment”.
IAGETH supported from the beginning the celebration of this day as one of the partners, thanks to the very kind invitation of Dr. Ezzoura Errami. Likewise, we are happy to remind that IAGETH and the Geological Society of Africa (GSAf) signed a pioneering MoU in April/2013 to “to bring the two organizations together to raise the awareness in African geoscientists to the importance of giving due attention to ethical aspects and issues during their professional activities”.
We encourage you all to participate in this event!
