Whatever sector you work in, your success will hinge to some degree or other on the activities of the Earth on which we live.
Now, for the first time, the Society is hosting a conference bringing together leading Earth Scientists and practitioners from a range of other sectors to share experiences, practices and technologies to collectively learn how we can better manage risk.
In addition to invited speakers, we are keen to hear from anyone who has tangible examples of lessons in risk management for/from Earth Sciences involving other sectors. These will most likely be industry, commerce, the public sector, defence/security or academic disciplines, but could also, for instance, be from non-profit, community or media organisations.
We would welcome formal presentations, short TED-style talks, practical demonstrations or posters, whatever reasonable way that can get the message and exchange of ideas across.
Please submit your paper to Georgina Worrall as a Word document.

Prior to this conference, there will be workshops bringing together operators and service providers from both mining and oil & gas to explore our understanding of risk faced extractive sector and methods by which we can better manage them.
Workshops into key risks faced by both mining and oil & gas.
Tips on managing risks from our operators’ CEOs, Heads of Geoscience and Chief Risk Officers.
For further information about these workshops, please visit the event webpage.
