For a long time, knowledge and wisdom has been allowing us to cope with natural disaster and harness earth natural resources. The earth science and technology could be used as a guidance in sustainable development. Hence, advancing the earth sciences and embracing new technology become important in reaching the sustainable development goals. Knowledge sharing and technology exchange in earth sciences research is one key to foster this advancement.

The International Seminar on Earth Science and Technology (ISEST) is aimed to become a medium for knowledge sharing, idea exchange, and collaboration seeds on earth science and technological research. The main theme of the 3rd ISEST is “Navigating the changing world through earth sciences and technology”.  The theme implicitly underline the importance of adaptation in facing the changing earth. Thus, the 3rd ISEST will be emphasized on adaptable approach in natural resources management and adaptation to natural disaster, while still considering various subjects on earth sciences and technology.
