     Dear colleagues,
    GeoEthics is an important topic that needs more attention and GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues are a way to  build and share ideas for developing GeoEthics and ethical business practices. 
    Why there is a need for GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues?
    “The world has enough for everyone’s needs, but not everyone’s greed.”  – Mahatma Gandhi 
    There is a need to promote greater understanding of GeoEthics and ethical business practices.  There has been some information of unethical business practices by some GIS vendors from pay discrimination against female employees to vendor lobbying to racism etc . GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues are a way to build and share ideas for developing GeoEthics and ethical business practices. These GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues are informal and can be part of any meetings, events etc (for example in Geography awareness week, GIS Day, OGC meetings, GEO meetings etc) to build and share ideas for developing GeoEthics and ethical business practices in all GIS companies and organisations.  Some example ethics topics below.

    GeoEthics is an important topic that needs more attention and GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues are a way to discuss and share information in GeoEthics topics.  So start GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues in your organisations, universities , companies, SMEs etc  to build and share ideas for developing GeoEthics and ethical business practices. 
    These GeoEthics Awareness Dialogues are informal and can be part of any meetings, events, conferences etc in the GIS community (for example in Geography Awareness week, GIS Day,  GEO meetings, GEO week,  OGC meetings etc) to build and share ideas for developing GeoEthics and ethical business practices. 
    Ethical frameworks in governance at all levels (from global to national to local) are important to protect democracy, protect human rights and prevent corruption.
    Best wishes
