Earth Science Week 2020: 11-17 October
This year, Earth Science Week (ESW) will be held from 11-17 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 "Earth Materials in Our Lives." The coming year's event will focus on the ways that Earth materials impact humans — and the ways human activity impacts these materials — in the 21st century.
Earth Science Week 2020 learning resources and activities will engage young people and others in exploring the relationship between Earth materials and people. The coming year's theme will promote public understanding of geoscience and stewardship of the planet, especially in terms of these raw materials.
