Mission Statement

At the beginning of the 21st century, the booming economic and industrial developments in Asia result in an urgent need for natural resources; and involve more sensitive interactions between human activities and the natural environment  All the possible effects due to  environmental changes, energy-resource depletion, and natural events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and floods all became global issues.  Any single event in one place will trigger global effects, especially when Asia becomes one of the most important economic entities in the world.  Most modern societies seem to be able to respond fairly quickly -- although often ineffectively -- to global issues. But it’s the long-range problems that modern societies have a hard time addressing in a purposeful, informed and sustained way, and a lot of such problems have strong geological roots. Geologists tend to see a lot of things differently from the general public because they think globally, and are knowledgeable of Mother Earth’s changes.  To me, the AOGS plays a timely role in providing a platform for Asian geologists to work together to help Asian countries meet the need in a coordinated and sustained effort. 

If I have the chance to serve AOGS, I will be more than happy to help Asian scientists to communicate well; and to encourage them to engage the public directly by explaining to them the nature of science in better and effective ways.
