PA32D - Geoscience and Sustainability at the Grassroots Level: Building on the 2019 Geoscience and Society Summit eLightning
Other Events

Following upon the success of the Geoscience and Society Summit, held in Stockholm in March of 2019, this session will explore pathways to enhance the impact of the geosciences in solving environmental and social issues facing societies today.  This session will advance the conversation around how to bridge the divides between us and better address the most pressing environmental issues facing mankind. Examples of successful innovations will be presented and abstracts on other engagement activities are welcome. The session will also include a summary of the themes that emerged from the meeting and that will guide future progress. These themes include the need to enhance the ease and effectiveness of communication between all stakeholders, the need for uniform standards to address sustainability coupled with methods to measure success, and the importance of making successful actions scalable so that programs can be scaled up (or down) to apply to other situations.
