Earth Science Week 2021: 10-16 October

ESW Logo

This year, Earth Science Week (ESW) will be held from 10-16 October. Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) 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, ESW will celebrate the theme "Water Today and for the Future." The event will focus on the importance of learning how to understand, conserve, and protect water, perhaps Earth's most vital resource.

ESW 2021 learning resources and activities will engage young people and others in exploring the importance of water — and water science — for living things, Earth systems, and the many activities that people undertake. Individuals of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities will be engaged in building understanding of water's role in timely topics including energy, climate change, the environment, natural hazards, technology, industry, agriculture, recreation, and the economy.
