Being bullied or harassed at your workspace has a tremendous impact on both your professional and personal wellbeing. But can you identify the acts and behaviours classified as bullying and harassment? How do we stop harmful behaviours, and what do institutions need to do to create a healthy and safe work environment? In this Great Debate, we raise awareness of the harmful effects of bullying and harassment in academia, provide clarity around this complex matter, and encourage people to speak up and take action against it. Through round-table discussions, we will talk about what is needed to create a safe and inclusive work environment for all.

Although geoscience research often uses research software, there are differing views on the importance and role of this software on science. A growing community argues that research software is not merely a by-product of science; instead, the effective and sustainable development of research software needs a skillset and resources beyond current academic education or management plans. This Great Debate will begin with statements from a panel of stakeholders, followed by a spirited discussion of the questions, problems, challenges, and opportunities around research software in the geosciences. It is a topic that concerns every researcher who uses computers, and those EGU members considering using research software.

Outreach is becoming more and more relevant and often is required by funding agencies, which often means engaging with the non-scientific public and a wider audience. There are many ways to do this, from blogging and vlogging, to using social media, to participating as a speaker at local science festivals. In this Short Course, we’ll provide practical examples of different outreach activities along with tips and suggestions to help you formulate an outreach idea based on your research activity. Look for the “Outreach – get your science out there! – Meet the speakers” pop-up event in the related programme section to talk further with the speakers!

This Earth Day, join us in celebrating the achievements of our EGU medal and award winners across the globe! To honour the 2020 and 2021 awardees, we’ve created a special celebration video featuring EGU President Helen Glaves and Vice-President Alberto Montanari, along with a specially built medal and awards website page to share links to the award lectures (both live and on-demand), citations, and the winners’ acceptance speeches. The link to the special celebration video and website page will appear in the programme and on the EGU website on Thursday, 22 April, at 17:00 CEST. We hope you’ll be inspired by the wonderful science, as well as the stories, of these remarkable Earth, planetary, and space science researchers!
