One Day in Europe: Italy
Adriana Cavaglià about the Central Italy earthquakes
One Day in Europe is a feature of EFG’s monthly newsletter GeoNews. Each month we travel to one of EFG’s national membership associations and discover their main activities and challenges. In May 2018 we have visited Italy and talked to representives of our Italian National Assocation CNG.
The Italian National Council of Geologists (CNG) is the national organization in Italy which has the legislated authority to register professional geoscientists and regulate geosciences practice in Italy. It is the largest national association within EFG representing more than 11000 individual members from the academic and professional sectors.
Representatives of CNG have informed us about challenges relating to natural hazards and equal opportunities for man and women. You can read here a contribution by Adriana Cavaglià who speaks about the role of professional geologists in managing the earthquakes that have occured in Central Italy between 2016 and 2018.
