As we all are aware, the 36th International Geological Congress 2020 (36th IGC), with the theme "Geosciences: The Basic Science for Sustainable Future" is going to be held in India for the second time in history after a gap of 56 years. 


This quadrennial mega geosciences global event happening under the aegis of International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), is scheduled to be held at India Expo Mart Ltd (IEML) Greater Noida, Delhi NCR between 2nd-8th March 2020. 


In order to provide a learning interface between budding geoscientists and the visiting peers, selected volunteers will be involved in the organisational activities that will expose them to first hand life time experiences. The 36th IGC will engage about 350 geoscientists as volunteers - they will be assigned multiple tasks / activities during the field trips (India) and the main congress (expected to have more than 5000 delegates).


We look forward to engage volunteers who are good at communication and organizational skills with sound geoscience knowledge both in the field and relevant to the congress (preferably with multilingual knowledge). The selected volunteers will work purely on temporary / contractual basis. The selection of the volunteers will be done through an Expression of Interest (EOI) which will be announced soon. 


Selected volunteers may be provided sufficient incentives (i.e. waiver of registration fee, per-diem, to and fro train fares) during training, workshop and main congress.
