Addressing key issues at the nexus of social science and Earth science
Our reliance on the Earth for water, energy, and minerals significantly affects climate change, economic prosperity, the environment, and human health and wellbeing.
There is an urgent need for a wider discussion on how we will resource present and future generations in a sustainable way.
This international Summer School will address key issues at the nexus of social science and Earth sciences:
Led by international scholars, practitioners, and stakeholders, participants will prepare discussion papers on emerging themes in this developing area of research.Students will be offered the opportunity to present the output of the summer school at the International Geological Congress in March 2020.
