About this event

ENGIE is an EIT-funded project which aims to raise the interest of young girls for geosciences and the related engineering disciplines, and thus to improve the gender balance in these professions that are traditionally dominated by men. Although the focus is on girls, the ENGIE actions are open to anyone who wants to know more about geosciences.

Even though it is vital for our life, geoscience is not a core subject in public education. However, the knowledge of geosciences helps us to manage energy, minerals and water – the resources which are essential for human life. The basic aim of this conference is to emphasise the importance of geosciences for future generations. Topics which have high relevance and interest nowadays will be discussed and the gender aspects of geo-professions will also be touched on.

The conference welcomes school students, educators, policy makers, media representatives and anybody else interested in Earth sciences.

The event will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 6 October 2022. Online participation is also possible
