This new international journal is born to satisfy the growing demand for spaces for discussion on the issues of geoethics and social geosciences, which are perceived as crucial for the coming years. Unique of its kind, the journal aims to relaunch the role of geosciences as key disciplines in defining the current pressing global problems, fostering multidisciplinary dialogue between the scientific and humanistic communities in order to offer a broad and organic perspective on issues of planetary scope. The journal is at the same time the culmination of a process of years of work on the themes of geoethics and the starting point for consolidating geoethics as a global ethics towards the Earth system.
