Webinars and online events

EGU webinars are hosted quarterly and give EGU members an opportunity to learn about EGU activities or science-related skills from the comfort of their own homes or offices. All webinars are free for current EGU members. Each session will also be uploaded to the EGU YouTube page after one week to allow anyone who is unable to join the live session or any interested non-members to still benefit from the information.

EGU also hosts other online networking and training events periodically, which may be run by the Division Representatives or the EGU Office. Official guidelines for EGU Online Events can be found here. For more information, please contact: communications@egu.eu.

Please feel free to share our webinars with anyone who may be interested. The EGU also welcomes suggestions for webinar topics. Please send your ideas to webinars@egu.eu.

Making geoscience societies more inclusive

This webinar will explore some of the many ways that geoscience societies and their members can be more inclusive of diverse under-represented or minority groups, in the face of existing structural discrimination, both in our work environments and personal lives. It will ask the challenging question of what can be done to improve, particularly when engaging with geoscience society activities?
