Geoscience and the Global Goals
(Solmaz Mohadjer & Sebastian Mutz)
This is a 2 session seminar designed to introduce the UN Sustainable Development Goals to geoscientists and interactively explore the role of research and the researchers in achieving these goals.
The background and results of the seminar conducted at the University of Tübingen (01/2016), as well as useful links for more information about the goals, can be found in this EGU guest blog:
