The American Geographical Society (AGS) EthicalGEO Initiative seeks to activate thinkers, innovators, entrepreneurs, policymakers, practitioners, students, and everyday citizens and bring them in to a global dialog that shines a light on their best ideas about the ethical challenges and opportunities posed by the many geospatial technologies and data sources that are reshaping our society.

Just as the EthicalAI dialog has enabled a broad-based discussion about the future implications of AI, and the ways in which our society might steer the technology to our purposes, the EthicalGEO initiative seeks to spur a similar conversation around the flurry of geospatial innovations that have become part of our daily lives.

AGS thanks all participants in the EthicalGEO initiative, from those who submitted to those who commented and voted, or simply just watched! The conversation doesn’t end there. Read the latest blogs and continue to share your thoughts with us.
