Coordination of geoscience educator organisations

The EGU Committee on Education has proposed that the EGU should support the International Geoscience Education Organisation (IGEO) in the formation of an EGU/IGEO European chapter of geoscience educators. Such a chapter would seek to liaise between those European countries where there is already support for geoscience educators and to offer support more broadly, particularly to geoscience educators in those countries who have no national support organisations.

A meeting to develop the EGU/IGEO European chapter was held in Coimbra, Portugal on 26 April 2019, with representatives from geoscience teaching organisations in France, Greece, Portugal, Spain, the UK and the IGEO.
