EARTH SCIENCE WEEK UPDATE: Special Alert!
American Geosciences Institute - November 2018
Earth Science Week's 2019 Theme is Here!
Aligned with ongoing efforts to enhance diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the sciences, AGI is proud to announce the theme for Earth Science Week 2019 (October 13-19, 2019): Geoscience Is for Everyone.
This theme emphasizes both the inclusive potential of the geosciences and the importance of the geosciences in the lives of all people. The 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, and/or through civic engagement. Because each person has a role in the areas the geosciences study—including Earth’s resources, natural hazards, and understanding the wonder of our environment—geoscience truly is for everyone.
You can study geoscience no matter who, where, or how old you are. The Geoscience Is for Everyone theme offers an opportunity for people of all descriptions to explore studies and careers in geosciences, whether that be by traversing mountainsides, crunching data in a lab, attending a class, or stargazing from a bedroom window. Geoscience can be done anywhere—in the countryside, in the city, or somewhere else—because Earth systems are continually interacting everywhere on the planet. Earth Science Week offers learning opportunities for anyone, any age, anywhere.
Geoscience is for everyone. Geoscience is for you.
The American Geosciences Institute is a nonprofit federation of geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 250,000 geologists, geophysicists and other earth scientists. Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in the profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resiliency to natural hazards, and interaction with the environment.
