The Geoscience Education Roadmap for Africa (GEO-ERA) aims to provide the entire African continent with a roadmap to advance the target of geoscience education, training and technology transfer.
• GEO-ERA works under a multi-institutional framework taking into account the significant previous work carried out by other institutions (e.g. UNESCO Earth Science Education Initiative in Africa).
• GEO-ERA will provide a common framework for understanding basic theoretical and practical geoscientific issues, from a multidisciplinary point of view and with a geoethical approach, taking into account that Africa is one but also that the different countries and regions require tailor-made analyses.
• GEO-ERA will be developed by Africans.
• GEO-ERA will increase the currently still scarce visibility of the contributions linking Geoscience Education and Africa through a set of concrete actions and the publication of thematic contributions in prestigious journals (i.e. Science, Nature, Journal of African Earth Sciences, Episodes).
