    In regard to the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) and its main objectives, EuroGeoSurveys and its GeoEnergy Expert Group (EGS GEEG) will support GeoPLASMA-CE's workshop for providing awareness about the main benefits of geology and geothermal energy and how these sectors can contribute to a more sustainable European economy and a zero carbon emission future.

    The upcoming zero-emission energy transition not only needs techno-scientific advancements but also cultural, social and political choices – A regime shift often calling for a public debate. The workshop therefore, aims to create awareness about the maturation of the geothermal energy and its value to usher a clean and sustainable energy future whilst highlighting the environmental, financial and technical challenges and associated advancements in tapping this natural resource. Recent developments in identification of these challenges and their solutions, undertaken in the framework of different European funded projects on geothermal energy, will be presented.

    In a wider perspective, EuroGeoSurveys and GeoPLASME-CE are committed to provide and share European web-based geoscientific data and knowledge for technical advice to the EU Institutions while asking for a solid and effective effort for integrating geoscientific-based data in the EU policy, leading to a more sustainable energy planning and energy future.

    From 20-22 September 2019, the European Minerals Day will welcome around 30.000 people from the neighbouring communities all over Europe for exploring the world of minerals while finding out what goes behind the gates of quarries, mines or plants in their vicinity.

    This year all the interested stakeholders will have the opportunity to discover the link between the minerals and the following sectors:

    - Innovation in the local economies: minerals are at the core of a material science industry, providing a significant number of jobs;

    - Importance of value chain: raw materials are linked to industries across all supply chain stages and provide for essential products of daily use;

    - Re-industrialisation agenda: raw materials are the backbone of all value chains, and therefore essentials for the European re-industrialisation process;

    - Enabler of carbon-neutral society: raw materials facilitate the transition to a zero carbon society in all the sectors of economy;

    - Embracing the idea of a circular economy: deploying minerals will have a favourable impact on the overall economy;

    - Biodiversity: the minerals sector helps to enhance biodiversity;

    - Resource efficiency: minerals companies sustainable manage resources all through the value chain.

    Who we are: A consortium of 12 European partners, representing aggregates, cement, gypsum, industrial minerals, metals, mineral exploration, mining and salt sectors, currently leads the EMD: IMA-Europe (Coordinator), CEMBUREAU, EIT RawMaterials, EuroGypsum, Eurométaux, Euromines, EuroGeoSurveys, the European Technology Platform on Sustainable Minerals Resources, EuSalt, UEPG, with the support of IndustriAll and the European Federation of Geologists.
