Earth Science Week 2023

Earth Science Week, 8th - 14th October 2023

From 8 - 14 October 2023 Earth Science Week will celebrate the theme "Geoscience Innovating for Earth and People". The year’s theme emphasises the way innovations in the geosciences are helping communities to create healthier and increasingly sustainable lives, whilst accelerating environmental problem-solving around the world.

The Earth Science Week theme provides opportunities for everyone to enhance their understanding of the growing role of geoscientists in society – exploring both established and emerging techniques used to develop stable infrastructure, sustainable water, mineral and energy resources and protect people from natural hazards. 

Each October, the Geological Society coordinates Earth Science Week in the United Kingdom, in cooperation with the American Geoscience Institute and the wider international geoscience community. Earth Science Week promotes responsible stewardship of the Earth through celebratory events and opportunities to discover the Earth Sciences, involving community groups, educators, and citizens.
