Resources for Future Generations 2018 is a collaborative, ambitious event that seeks to highlight business, science, and policy. The event will bring together attendees from industry, government, and academia as well as Indigenous peoples, and local communities to discuss some of the most pressing challenges concerning resources and related sustainability issues. The conference will cover many aspects of earth science that underpin our understanding of resources, focused sessions on critical aspects of energy, minerals and water, and a broad program covering societal, policy, Indigenous, community and educational topics.
Mark your calendars! The 52nd annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors will take place in Niagara Falls, New York, September 26 to 29, 2018. We hope you’ll join us for what promises to a great meeting, in a spectacular setting.
Resources for Future Generations (RFG2018) will be a global forum to explore the future of natural resources and the interplay among Earth, Energy, Minerals and Water — as well discussions on nontechnical themes such as Resources & Society and Education & Knowledge.
With more than 24,000 anticipated attendees, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting represents the largest confluence of earth and space scientists in the world. As in years past, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) will have a strong presence at the Fall Meeting, driving conversation on topics related to the geoscience workforce and the importance of geoscience information to research and decision-making.
By now we hope you’ve heard about Resources for Future Generations 2018 (RFG2018), an innovative international conference we have partnered with that will explore important questions about creating a sustainable future for the extraction, use, and management of earth’s resources.
What happens when you bring industry, government, First Nations representatives, policy-makers academics, scientists, and members of civil society together? It may sound like a strange mixer, but Resources for Future Generations 2018 (RFG2018) recognizes that in order to have a meaningful conversation about the use of earth’s resources in the future, all the voices must be in the room.
Are you attending the Geological Society of America (GSA) annual meeting in Seattle this year? If so, please join us on the morning of Wednesday October 25th for an exciting Pardee symposium, "Earth Anatomy Revealed: Geologic Mapping for Our Future". Details on this Pardee Symposium can be found at http://bit.ly/EarthAnatomyPardee.
The Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst, generally called “The Sinkhole Conference,” is the longest-running international conference of its type. Since 1984, engineers, geologists, hydrologists, land managers, biologists, and many others have gathered at these meetings to exchange cutting-edge information on karst and its many benefits and challenges. Abstracts may be submitted until 15 August 2017, after which will be the time to submit your papers to accompany your abstracts. The papers of past Sinkhole Conferences have made those proceedings highly sought and widely cited. We expect the proceedings of the upcoming meeting will be the best yet.
