Green humanity

The pursuit of global development goals amidst ongoing multiple crises presents a significant challenge that demands the synergy of diverse scientific disciplines to enhance human knowledge and devise integrated solutions. This calls for global cooperation and partnership across various sectors of society, including governments, intergovernmental organizations, businesses, academia, civil society institutions, and individual stakeholders.

The Earth Sciences and the emerging field of New Geology, with their emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches and addressing the evolving needs of humanity in the 21st century, while considering the environmental, economic, and social aspects of development, will play a crucial in addressing the complex challenges of the present, accelerating the achievement of sustainable development goals, and shaping the green future we want.

Geologists, in particular, with their profound comprehension of the geosphere, namely, its composition, properties, and dynamics, and its interactions with the hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere, and anthroposphere, should take the lead in embracing emerging global trends in natural resource management through collective efforts.
