“Earth and Human Activity” the theme of Earth Science Week 2017. This year's event, the 20th annual Earth Science Week celebration, promotes awareness of what geoscience tells us about human interaction with the planet's natural systems and processes.

Earth Science Week 2017 learning resources and activities are engaging young people and others in exploring the relationship between human activity and the geosphere (earth), hydrosphere (water), atmosphere (air), and biosphere (life). This year's theme promotes public understanding and stewardship the planet, especially in terms of the ways people affect and are affected by these Earth systems.
