Earth Science Week - How Will You Mark the Event?

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, 2017 and will celebrate the theme "Earth and Human Activity." 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.  To mark the occasion of the 20th annual Earth Science Week, AGI and key program partners are launching a slate of new initiatives, materials, and other offerings for participants throughout the year. Details will be announced in the coming months at
