The EDIG project is a volunteer-led initiative aimed at promoting progressive action to help make geoscience more inclusive, accessible and equitable. The EDIG Conference 2022 is being run to harness the collective power of the geoscience community to enact change, promoting and improving the equity, diversity and inclusivity of geoscience for the benefit of all. The conference will be run virtually, across three time zones, allowing all of us to come together and engage under three main themes; data, awareness and action.
