Theme Earth Science Career Event 2023

Each edition of the ESCE has a new relevant theme.  This year’s theme is “Exploring new horizons”. After a turbulent period of uncertainty, it is time to look ahead again. The image we had of our future, has changed dramatically in a short time. Think of relevant themes such as climate change and the energy transition. Right now, the world is at the beginning of a new era. What opportunities are there for the new generation of students?

The challenges awaiting us will be fierce. Nowadays, the problems are more complex than ever, with the solutions being connected to one another. At the same time the possibilities are endless, in which the geosciences are portraying an increasingly prominent role. The task to manage the available resources in an efficient and sustainable way cannot be neglected. However, to access your own potential and the potential of your environment, you will have to be creative and adventurous. You will have to push your boundaries, just like the speakers of this edition’s ESCE. They all have accomplished this task in his/her own way. In their lectures they will tell you, with great enthusiasm, how they explored their own ‘new horizons’.
