This year's Earth Science Week will be held from October 13-19, 2019 and will celebrate the theme "Geoscience Is for Everyone." The coming year's event will emphasize both the inclusive potential and the importance of the geosciences in the lives of all people.

People of all ages are invited, during Earth Science Week 2019, to join in this creative endeavor through our available learning resources and activities. The coming year's theme is meant to encourage individuals of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities to engage with the geosciences, whether that is as a geoscience professional, a hobbyist, or through civic engagement. Because each person has a role in the areas that geoscientists study—including Earth’s resources, natural hazards, and understanding the wonder of our environment—geoscience truly is for everyone.
