2017 Year of Risk Header
The Geological Society of London (GSL) announced that they have designated 2017 as "The Year of Risk," following two successful themed years. In addition to geohazards GSL will explore the increasingly complex risks associated with growing demand for resources like water, minerals and energy. 

Multiple events will be hosted throughout the year that will involved scientists, policy makers, social scientists, economists, insurers, the media and modelers. They will celebrate the change-over from the 2016 theme, "The Year of Water" with their 2016 Bryan Lovell Meeting titled, "Water, Hazards and Risks."
