T47. The art of Geosciences communication


Congressi SGI-SIMP

Despite the crucial role of Geosciences in shaping a more sustainable future for society and the planet, a critical question for geoscientists is how to communicate their contributions more effectively to advancing sustainable development across various sectors, from environmental challenges to geohazards and georesources. Moreover, European and national funding programs actively encourage scientists to engage the public in increasingly imaginative ways, addressing collective concerns and even involving the public in the scientific process itself.
Such issue encourages approaching Earth Sciences from different viewpoints, fostering a holistic understanding of our planet, while engaging a broader audience in the wonders of scientific exploration and creative expression.
The primary objective of this session is to involve geoscientists in presenting, discussing, and sharing best practices in effective geoscience communication, from data analysis to artistic expression.
Traditional communication methods, such as storytelling, language, and visualization, as well as emerging digital strategies like citizen science, social networks, and apps, will be considered.
Unconventional approaches, including visual arts, literature, comics, music, and performance to convey scientific information to the presentation of Earth Sciences inspired artistic works are welcome.
Contributions to the session will be evaluated for potential publication in a thematic special issue.
CONVENERS: Valeria Giampaolo (CNR), Ortensia Amoroso (Università degli Studi di Salerno), Rosa Coluzzi (CNR), Giacomo Eramo (Università di Bari Aldo Moro), Marco Romano (Sapienza, Università di Roma), Anna Giamborino (APPI, Associazione Paleontologica e Paleoartisca Italiana)​.
