Our aims are to support volcanic research and to provide a connection between volcanologists and public. In Germany and in big parts of Europe, volcanism and volcanology are barely noticed, despite the fact that there are slumbering volcanoes in many regions. Furthermore, big volcanic eruptions can cause global effects and tourists on vacation could face a sudden volcanic eruption. Thus, we intend to raise awareness of the fascinating phenomenon of volcanism, to educate people and to provide a lobby for volcanology.
To achieve our aims, we are working on several different projects:
Apart from realizing our aims, it also belongs to the duties of a society to promote communication and meetings among its members. For this purpose, we are organizing several meetings during the year. In order to make more meetings possible, we will establish regional groups.
