THE FUTURE OF GEOSCIENCE
“21st century society faces unprecedented challenges in meeting the resource needs of a growing global population which aspires to higher living standards, while learning to live more sustainably on our planet.”
The Geological Society
Geoscience focus has changed through its history. From the development of the science, through early classic field mapping, the development of key theories such as continental drift and into the 19th and 20th Centuries where focus shifted towards the understanding and exploitation of natural resources.
The 21st Century will see the continued development of the understanding of our earth and our neighbouring planets. The energy transition away from fossil fuels is accelerating fast and geoscientists can be a vital part of the shift towards a low-carbon energy future.
