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.
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
We are pleased to inform everyone that the Geological Society of the Philippines (GSP) will be convening the Regional Geoscience Congress of Southeast Asia (GEOSEA) 2021. Originally set to be held last year, the GEOSEA 2021 will be held on a virtual mode with the theme, “5 (+1) Years after ASEAN Integration: Milestones, Challenges and Perspectives for Geoscientists”. The Virtual GEOSEA 2021 provides an online platform for the exchange of ideas and recent developments among members of the different geological societies of the Southeast Asian region. This event aims to foster cooperation in advancing the geosciences, and addressing unprecedented changes in the geoscience community due to pandemic.
Current researches and findings from various fields in the geosciences including energy and resources, geohazards and tectonics, among others will be tackled in the scientific discussions. Geoscientists, policy makers, media practitioners, undergraduate and graduate students, and other stakeholders will participate in the said event.
