SURVEY ON GEOLOGY IN PUBLIC EDUCATION IN EUROPE
Early education in geosciences, including geology, is essential for society, creating informed citizens who understand how we depend on earth materials, with strong notions of sustainable interaction with the natural environment and an understanding of natural hazards and their avoidance. In order to assess the role and state of geology in public education this survey is carried out by the European Federation of Geologists, Panel of Experts on Education. The survey seeks input from participants from all over Europe. Your perspective is important, and we hope you will take the time to respond. All responses to the survey will be aggregated before the results are reported. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Éva Hartai panel coordinator (eva.hartai@eurogeologists.eu).
