Join a new online lecture series on how basic geosciences are essential in fostering the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development, promulgated by the United Nations, encourages exchanges between scientists and all categories of stakeholders, whether from grassroots communities or political decisionmakers and international leaders, to associations, students and local authorities.
GeoUnions (a group of nine unions and associations representing the geosciences, among which IAU, IUGG, IUGS, IGU, INQUA, members of the IYBSSD Steering Committee), established a “Distinguished Lecture Series on Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development” aligned with the IYBSSD to highlight the importance of basic sciences for sustainable development.
To promote discussion and debate around these issues, the ISC is convening three online webinars on 21 February, 21 March and 18 April 2023, to discuss rethinking environmental security for the 21st century; disaster risk reduction and interdependencies between vulnerability, exposure, and hazards; and how we can consider the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda from a data-driven geographical perspective. Our speakers, Simon Dalby, Irasema Alcántara-Ayala and Chen Jun invite you to engage this conversation.
See detailed presentations of each lecture on the dedicated page in our general schedule:
“Firepower, Geopolitics and the Future: Rethinking Environmental Security” – 21 February 2023
“Apprehending the Duality of Disaster Risk and Sustainable Development” – 21 March 2023
“Geospatial Information-Enabled SDGs Monitoring” – 18 April 2023
