The ENGIE project is pursuing precisely the same objective, and thus, it supported the GiG 2020 as one of the sponsor organisations.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, this year’s GiG was online. The virtual event started on 3 July. Organisers and panellists planned activities and put interesting material together for the girls to explore and get ready over the weekend for the main event on Monday. On 6 July, the live interactive session took place with a full programme including virtual field trips, workshops, talks, Q&A sessions.
The European Federation of Geologists’ Treasurer Ruth Allington represented the ENGIE project during this interactive session. She participated as a panellist in the Career Questions & Answers session on Challenges, Changes and Opportunities in the morning. Several girls participated and had a lot of interesting questions on careers for panellists. In the afternoon, there were field trips and labs.
