2019 Theme

The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce that the theme of Earth Science Week 2019 is "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.

Objectives

  • To engage students in discovering the Earth sciences.
  • To remind people that Earth science is all around us.
  • To encourage Earth stewardship through understanding.
  • To motivate geoscientists to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about the Earth.
