Join the discussion: the impact of COVID-19 on research and the scientific community
Following directly on from SC2.1: Examining the impact of COVID-19 on research and the scientific community, this pop-up Networking Event will enable participants to share how COVID-19 has impacted their research or personally as scientists. This networking session won't build on SC2.1, but rather give participants the opportunity to discuss their own experiences and potential coping mechanisms with others.

ECS in Machine Learning Geoscience Applications Networking Event
The nexus of machine learning and geosciences is a burgeoning one, with many new papers being published every month. Particularly, many early-career researchers are using ML and artificial intelligence in their research. At this informal networking event, we begin with a group discussion on past research and future opportunities at this scientific intersection. Breakout groups will then be set up to facilitate more focused discussions. The goal of the event is to foster new interdisciplinary and international collaborations. There will possibly be a white paper written as a longer-term output of the event.

Tektonika Open Discussion
τeκτoniκa is an up-coming community-led diamond open access (DOA) journal, which aims to publish high-quality research in structural geology and tectonics. It is a grass-roots community-driven initiative that relies on the involvement of Earth Scientists from around the globe. τeκτoniκa is part of an expanding movement within academia focused on breaking the barriers inherited from the pre-internet publishing era, to ensure free and open access to knowledge. We want to showcase and openly discuss how DOA journals in general (and Tektonika in particular) might shape the future of geoscience publishing.

Visualization in earth sciences: what works and what doesn't?
Effectively visualizing data is crucial for the publication and outputs of geoscience research. Which tips and best practices from the visualization community can be applied to earth science graphics for public or academic audiences? I can discuss my perspective in doing research on visualization for seismic hazard (see https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/EGU21-8308.html, session on 27.4., 13:30 CET) and aftershock forecast maps (see https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/EGU21-8318.html, session on 30.4., 15:30 CET). My background is on color scales, classification schemes, and graph formats, specifically for showing uncertainty in spatial heat maps. Please bring your experiences and hard-earned lessons on these points and more!

Teacher/Scientist Pairing Scheme
Join us in this pilot initiative coordinated by the EGU to promote geoscience education in schools. The event takes you to Algarve (Portugal) to join Hélder Pereira and his school classroom together with Susana Custódio, a seismologist from the University of Lisbon. Using scientific data, the teacher and the scientist work together to guide the students in their quest for understanding the origin of the South American volcanic gaps. This session is conducted in Portuguese with live English translation, and is likely to be of interest to anyone interested in science education and outreach.

Imagining a Future Where All Can Thrive – Geoscience Brainstorming at #vEGU21
Humankind must make fundamental changes to maintain a habitable planet for future generations, but many of us have a difficult time determining what to do because we don’t have a clear goal. The purpose of this discussion is to begin to assemble a hopeful vision of what life could be like. What do we need to create that vision? What must we change most and how can we begin to change it? How can we coordinate our efforts to enhance effectiveness? We want to talk about the big picture, and we want to learn from your experience.

Mindfulness Hour Part 2
With the #vEGU21 coming to an end, we are all very excited and maybe a little tired after nearly two intense weeks of very exciting events, scientific sessions, networking events, short courses, and a lot of "screen time" .. We would like to invite you to the second pop-up event "Mindfulness Hour" guided by Maria Scheel, after the success of the Short Course: "Mind your Head" (Available on demand) and the follow-up pop-up event. No matter if you are a beginner or solid practitioner, the guided practice will include breath work and self-soothing tools, as well as some well-needed(!) stretches

Meet the TS ECS Representative IV
I'm David Fernández-Blanco, the Representative of Early Career Scientists of the EGU Tectonic and Structural Geology division (EGU TS ECS Rep). As a researcher, I try to understand how the Earth’s vertical motions evolve in time and why. I mix regional-scale structural geology with basin analysis and approaches from geomorphology, stratigraphy, and geodynamics. As the EGU TS ECS Rep, I'm here to represent and help you, so please get in contact. You can join me in "my office" (link below) at 6 pm CET on Wednesdays and Thursdays during #vEGU21 or get in contact at @_GeoDa_ and geo.david.fernandez@gmail.com
