Cape Town Statement on Geoethics now published

What is Geoethics?

 Geoethics consists of research and reflection on the values which underpin appropriate behaviours and practices, wherever human activities interact with the Earth system. Geoethics deals with the ethical, social and cultural implications of geoscience education, research and practice, and with the social role and responsibility of geoscientists in conducting their activities. ENVRIplus promotes the importance of Geoethics within the research infrastructures through work organized in WP13 – Developing an Ethical Framework for RIs.

The Cape Town Statement on Geoethics is now available in 35 languages:

Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Belarusian, Bengali, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Nepali, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Sepedi, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Tamil, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu.

Translations have been possible thanks to a great job done by IAPG officers, members, and followers. The IAPG pubblication that collects all the translations is for free download and and can be cited as follows:
