The European Geoparks Network (EGN) was established in June 2000 by four Geoparks. Today EGN includes 70 geoparks from 23 different European countries. Main objective of the cooperation between Geoparks is the protection of geological heritage and the promotion of sustainable development of their territories in Europe. The EGN coordintaion committee (CC) comprises the 2 official nominated representatives of each Geopark, GGN Individual members from Europe plus the representative of UNESCO, IUGS and IUCN. The CC meets regularly, at least twice a year, each time hosted in a different Geopark, mainly to discuss the Network’s progress and to coordinate joint programmes and activities between members.
The 41st European Geopark Network Coordination Committee Meeting will take place between 19th and 24th of March 2018 in the crossborder Karavanke/Karawanken UNESCO Global Geopark, located between Slovenia and Austria.
The program of the 41st European Geopark Network Coordination Committee Meeting will be enriched with special “Family and geopark friends” accompanying program, GEOfair, numerous fieldtrips, pressconference and open session with the main topic “Sustainable tourism – regional identity in crossborder regions”, where internationally important speakers will present their own view on mentioned topic. “Family and geopark friends” accompanying program is intended for families and Geopark friends from all over the world. It includes various Geo-adventures and introduction to cultural heritage of the Karavanke/Karawanken UNESCO Global Geopark.
The General Assembly 2018 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) is held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 8–13 April 2018. The assembly is open to the scientists of all nations. The entire congress centre is fully accessible by wheelchairs.
The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.
GEOHAB (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying biophysical (i.e. geologic and oceanographic) indicators of benthic habitats and ecosystems as proxies for biological communities and species diversity.
The GeoHab 2018 annual conference will be held in Santa Barbara, California at the Fess Parker Resort from Monday May 7 to Friday May 11 2018.
The annual conference brings geologists, biologists, acousticians, statisticians, spatial analysts and environmental managers from around the world and provides a truly multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas that underpin sustainable ocean management and mapping.GeoHab is now in its 17th year and has several publications based on work contributed by members, coordinated through annual meetings.
This electronic conference offers a forum for researchers engaged in the study of all interdisciplinary aspects of the earth and planetary sciences, to present their research and exchange ideas with their colleagues. This online conference will allow you to participate without having to leave home saving you time, travel and participation expenses while at the same time gaining new information on current research in geosciences.
