"Earth Science for a Sustainable World"

October 8 - 15, 2022


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 - 15, 2022 and will celebrate the theme "Earth Science for a Sustainable World". This year's event will emphasize the essential role of earth science in helping people make decisions that maintain and strengthen the planet's ability to support thriving life.
