2019’s premier geoscience event will take place on Friday October 11th in the Sheraton Athlone Hotel. The event will include a number of high-profile speakers, facilitated networking opportunities and a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Institute of Geologists of Ireland (IGI).
This day-long event will include three sessions; Session One focussing on the origins and evolution of the IGI including the future IGI’s strategy; Session Two will see three high profile speakers present challenging and thought-provoking discussions on climate emergency and the role of geoscientists in this emergency, and Session Three will consider community relations and how geoscientists have a key part to play in sustainable development going forward.
We are also hosting a facilitated networking event to allow IGI members to come together across all our geoscience disciplines and to offer an opportunity for members of all career stages to connect. The day will be finished off with a gala dinner to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our Institute.
