Earth Science Week is a public awareness campaign organized by AGI as a service to the public and the geoscience community. The annual celebration was established to give students and citizens new opportunities to discover Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. It highlights the important contributions that Earth and environmental sciences make to society and invites the public to become engaged in current scientific exploration. AGI launched Earth Science Week in 1998 as the culminating event celebrating the Institute's 50th anniversary. Each year, Earth Science Week is celebrated during the second full week of October.
