Empowering girls
to become
the geoscientists
of tomorrow

about the project

The ENGIE project aims to turn the interest of girls to study geosciences and geo-engineering, and thus to improve the gender balance in these disciplines. The project is developing an awareness-raising strategy and creating a stakeholder collaboration network for the implementation of a set of outreach actions in more than 20 European countries.

Decorativity of natural building stones from Croatia

Decorativity of natural building stones from Croatia

Have you ever observed the stone on the streets that you walk on? Or stone on the monuments, statues and buildings? Did You ever think where did it come from? Have you ever wondered why used stone materials are so decorative? Natural building stone represent mineral raw material that is used in the architecture, sculptures, statues, monuments, cladding facades, paving streets, masonry walls, cemeteries etc. For this type of stone its decorativity is very important.

Interactive events for children

Interactive events for children

I`d like to tell you about the interactive events for children in the frame of the education programme of the Ukrainian Association of Geologists. Our story will not touch on boring lectures or traditional lessons, but it will feature new interactive actions for the children.

ENGIE in Turkey

ENGIE in Turkey

We, geoscientists, study the most important topics of the world, such as mineral resources, energy, water, structures, and natural hazards. In Turkey, same with the rest of the world, the shortage of well-educated female geoscientists and gender imbalance is increasing day by day. To improve the gender balance and help to grow qualified female geoscientists, it is a pleasure for us to be part of the Engie Project.
