The Geological Society of the Philippines (GSP) is the only accredited integrated professional organization (AIPO) of geologists in the Philippines by the Professional Regulation Commission.
January 18, 2023 | Online
The Geological Society of the Philippines invites its active members to nominate geologists qualified to be the 2023 PRC’s Outstanding Professional of the Year in the Field of Geology.Duly filled nomination forms shall be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than 20 January 2023.
Nomination form can be downloaded here .
The organization works and supports initiatives to advance the science and profession of geology and related fields, including raising public awareness on Earth’s dynamic systems and natural events that impact the society. This goal is attained through the conduct of trainings, symposia, local and international conferences, seminars and online education activities such as webinars and discussion forums.
The GSP encourages its members to pursue scientific research to generate new knowledge and scientific data that contribute to a better understanding of the geology and tectonics of the Philippines, in particular, and geosciences, in general. The annual Geological Convention (GeoCon) provides a good opportunity for the exchange of ideas among Filipino and foreign geoscientists. Significant contributions and advances in the field have also been documented in the Journal of the Geological Society of the Philippines.
GSP organizes and supports forums that inform its members of the latest ideas and developments in the study of Philippine tectonics, Asian tectonics and related topics like metallogenesis, seismology and geohazards, among others.
Geology is a noble profession requiring high degree of morality, technical knowledge and personal responsibility to co-professionals, employers and clients, and to the community
The GeoCon 2022 provides a hybrid platform for the presentation of papers that center on the theme "Disruptions, Transformations – Geosciences at the Forefront." The theme echoes GSP's commitment to carry on its share in responding to the needs of the time especially during this period of disruptions and transformations e.g. the Covid-19 pandemic, the recently concluded national elections, and the predicted climate change’s 1.5ºC overshoot which will have a significant global impact. The need for adaptation is now greater than ever to protect the environment and, above all, the human communities.
To be presented at this year's convention are topics centered on our theme. These include current works and findings in the different geoscience disciplines such as resources, climate change, geohazards, energy, tectonic, and environment.
