CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

This is the first conference of the Geological Society’s ‘Geohazards, Geoengineering and Georesilience’ theme. This two-day hybrid conference focuses on stories of georesilience and will share, and celebrate, the interdisciplinary processes and outputs that aim to lessen the adverse impacts of geohazards.

Geohazards can bring about great change to lives, livelihoods and landscapes; but there is still much to learn about how humans experience, understand and cope with hazardous events and their aftermath. Natural hazards are all around us and there is an uncomfortable familiarity with the narratives of death, destruction and disruption that accompany these events.

On the other hand, stories of togetherness and deepening of social bonds can enhance individual and community resilience and support recovery. Arguably more extraordinary than the event itself, these stories of resilience have a power beyond those that own them. We are championing more creative and emotionally attentive approaches to communicating about geohazards and risk reduction. In light of this, the Georesilience conference will combine an art exhibition with traditional academic posters and presentations; so we encourage participants to use different art forms to engage fellow attendees.

The conference will combine an art exhibition and traditional academic posters and presentations. We invite exhibits in any format. More information will follow about how you can contribute.
