On April 22nd took place the Earth’s Day SEG Student Chapters Symposium, a meeting organized by the SEG and NUI SEG Student Chapter to discuss and reflect on the role of economic geology in the frame of sustainable development. The event brought together students from around the world who, through short clips and presentations, shared their interests and motivations to pursue careers in economic geology. Many of them took the opportunity to show their research on the topic and explain their views on the impact of geology on responsible raw materials supply. While the need for the growth of green technologies and renewable energy production is today one of the top topics of debate, little is said about how this industry will be provided with the materials it requires in a way that is both ethical and responsible towards our planet.


We are glad that Malena Cazorla, Laura Gemmrich, Ada Rodríguez and Pol Suñer, all of them members of our Student Chapter, decided to attend and take part in the conversation. We’d like to express our appreciation for the initiative of the organizers and say that we are looking forward to more events like this in the future.
