SEG Student Chapter Earth Day Symposium Call for Submissions
Date: April 21, 2023
Time: 12:00pm ET (UTC-5)
Location: Virtual on Zoom
This year the Cornell University SEG Student Chapter are organizing the Earth Day symposium and are look forward to working to making this an outstanding event. The theme of this year’s symposium is: Minerals: The Foundation to a Sustainable Future.
Submit Your Video
One of the primary goals is to engage with students and promote economic geology; thus, we would like you to participate in the Earth Day program with two types of videos:
1. A more informal video where students talk about themselves, their origins, their status (undergrad/grad), why they have chosen economic geology, how their student chapter/SEG has helped them develop their careers, and a brief vision of the future within our science. This sounds like a lot, but videos with dynamic talks and short speeches will be the most valuable. The length for these videos should be 60-90 seconds.
2. Technical videos. To participate in this section, students involved in research or projects should share and record a 6-7 minute presentation about their focus, their progress, and the connection between what they have done with minerals and the green transition or sustainability. The idea is to present a broader perspective of economic geology. Using a slide deck for visual aids is highly encouraged.
Both videos will increase the visibility of student chapters and strengthen the relationship between economic geology and society as a whole.
The deadline for the video submission is April 9, 2023.
