Scope JpGU-AGU will have a joint meeting 2020 "For a Borderless World of Geoscience". This symposium will present the viewpoint of leaders from the major geoscience societies (JpGU, AGU, EGU and AOGS), which are partner unions, who are also leading scientists representing exciting geoscience fields. Due to the spread of new coronavirus infection, the meeting will be virtual and has been postponed to July. Now we are now facing the international travel restrain, hindered international exchange of field survey, promotion of non-contact, remote and/or automatic operation technology, open data policy on the submission of experimental data on COVID-19, and other many issues such as health, education, equality, environment and international cooperation related to the infection. After COVID-19, it is highly likely that a new world will emerge without returning to the previous world. The Earth and Planetary Science is essential to the well-being of the humankind and sustainable environments. Therefore the session would like to discuss what kind of the challenges we should do for the future after overcoming the infection.
