Code of Ethics
The Deontological code of conduct as formulated by the RAW-CST counsil is an important tool to work with. It has been subscribed by all the members of the associations and is an ethical guidline as to how collectioning, fieldwork and prospection should be organised.
The Deontological code of conduct is one of the main reasons why we decided to become a member of the Council. Another important asset is the fact that we can meet between the boards of different belgian associations and discuss various topics. This forum is a indispensable practice to sustain dialogue between all Belgian geo-scientific organisations.
We would also like to encourage other associations to join the counsil and participate in the dialogue. Concordia res parvae crescunt (Unity Makes Strength).
