    The Geological Survey of Iran, in cooperation with the Earth Science Matters Foundation, organizes the First International Geosciences Conference in Iran, entitled "Geosciences and Politics, Economy & Culture in a Changing World". The International Conference will be held on 18 and 19 February 2014 in Tehran and is back-to-back to the 32nd National Geosciences Conference in Iran (16 and 17 February, to be held on 14 topics, each in another Province. One of the main reasons for this Conference to be organised is to highlight the recent changes in the political situation in Iran which will impact the position of the geosciences in the nation. The geosciences are key to sustainable development but this fact is not always fully understood by governments and other decision-makers yet. The high-level Conference aims to address such decision-makers on the linchpin position of the geosciences with respect to politics, economy and culture. This first high-level International Conference will be a major academic and public event and be held immediately after the 32nd annual Conference which is traditionally the largest geo-scientific event in Iran.
