Our mission

As a community of people who work on volcanoes internationally, we believe that not enough is being done to mitigate the significant risks posed by globally impactful eruptions. 

We aim to support schemes to identify dangerous and neglected volcanoes, to empower and aid local volcanologists to provide early warnings for eruptions, to increase community preparedness around volcanoes and lobby at the international level for sustained investment and global coordination of volcanic early warning and response.

While there is an international presence for advocacy and coordination for other global risks such as climate change, planetary defence, pandemics and nuclear risk, the same is not true for volcanic risk.
