Information

IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics

The International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG) is a multidisciplinary, scientific community and aims at creating awareness about application of ethical principles to theoretical and practical aspects of Geosciences.

The IAPG is affiliated to the IUGS - International Union of Geological Sciences, AGI - American Geosciences Institute, GSA - Geological Society of America, GSL - Geological Society of London, GIRAF - Geoscience Information in Africa Network, ICPHS - International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences

The IAPG is legally recognized as a not-for-profit association, has more than 2000 members in 125 countries on 5 continents, and can count on a network of 30 national sections.

The IAPG aims to promote Geoethics values and principles through international cooperation, encouraging the involvement and debate of geoscientists, especially those belonging to less developed countries, and assuring a good coordination among these nations. The IAPG intends to foster the dissemination of Geoethics through a dedicated website, the publication of scientific papers, the organization of meetings and sessions/symposia on Geoethics within national and international geoscientific events.

The IAPG will accomplish these objectives by:

• holding International Conferences on Geoethics;
• encouraging the establishment of both regional and specialty groups, meetings, research and field programs and publications on Geoethics;
• cooperating with national and international organizations whose aims are complementary to those of the IAPG;
• exchanging information through its members, with newsletters, publications or other suitable tools, social networks included;
• promoting the creation of working groups within universities and professional associations, for the development of Geoethics themes;
• encouraging the participation of geoscientists in the work of relevant international organizations on the basis of equal opportunities.

The achievement of the IAPG objectives will lead to the:

• increase of a research base and the strengthening of the Geoethics from the scientific point of view;
• identification of methods for its more effective application;
• reflection on the role that geoscientists can have in society and the identification of suitable forms, positions, means and actions to be adopted by them;
• growth of awareness about our responsibility, both as Geoscientists and as members of the human community.

and above all to:

• the involvement of the community in the idea of a common and shared “geo-heritage”, to be considered as a cultural, educational and scientific value, as well as a social capital;
• a cultural renewal in the way we perceive and relate to our Planet;
• the sensitization towards the defense of life and the richness of the Earth, in all its forms.

The Crack-Up: Dwight Eisenhower & the Road Trip that Changed America, with Brian C. Black

In 1919, a young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower, along with a "Mad Max"-style military convoy, set out on a cross-country road trip to examine the nascent state of America's roads. Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C. Black explains how this trip influenced Eisenhower's decisions decades later, both as general and president, and laid the groundwork for the rise of petroleum-based engines and the interstate highway system.

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

How can artificial intelligence improve food security, medicine, and infrastructure in Arctic communities? What are some logistical, ethical, and governance challenges? Western Michigan's Professor Fritz Allhoff details the future of technology in this extreme environment, which is being made more accessible because of climate change. Plus he shares his thoughts on some open philosophical questions surrounding AI.

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
