Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. This year's Earth Science Week will be held from October 8 - 14, 2023 and will celebrate the theme "Geoscience Innovating for Earth and People." The coming year's event will emphasize the many ways that innovations in the geosciences are helping communities create healthier and increasingly sustainable lives, while accelerating environmental problem-solving around the world.
The Earth Science Week 2023 theme provides opportunities for everyone to explore established and emerging technologies and techniques used by geoscientists as they play a growing role in society through developing stable infrastructure; fostering sustainable water, mineral and energy resources; analyzing and applying data about the Earth; and keeping people safe from natural hazards. Program resources and activities will engage young people and others in exploring the many ways that Earth science innovations benefit people and the planet.
Raising awareness of the geosciences nationally and around the globe, AGI leads Earth Science Week in cooperation with its sponsors and the geoscience community as a service to the public. Each October, community groups, educators, and interested citizens organize celebratory events. Earth Science Week offers opportunities to discover the Earth sciences and engage in responsible stewardship of the Earth. Learn more at www.earthsciweek.org.
