About Earth Science Week

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 13 - 19, 2024 and will celebrate the theme "Earth Science Everywhere." The coming year's event will explore the many ways that earth science is conducted — by various types of people and professions in interconnected disciplines — to help solve problems for communities and the planet.

The Earth Science Week 2024 theme provides opportunities for everyone to explore the ways that geoscience knowledge and applications can be found in all parts of our lives--the buildings we live in, the products we use, the roads we drive on, the vehicles that get us from place to place, and much more. Program resources and activities will engage young people and others in exploring Earth's materials and the rapid or long-term environmental changes that can affect many aspects of our lives and communities.

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.
