Earth Science Week 2024

Earth Science Week 2024 logo

From 13–19 October 2024, Earth Science Week will celebrate the theme "Earth Science Everywhere".

The year’s theme emphasises the influence geoscience has in our homes, in products, roads and transportation, and across STEM disciplines and the humanities. This theme will hopefully encourage individuals to appreciate how geoscience relates to their interests, communities and future pursuits. 

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.

As a Society, we celebrate by hosting a variety of outreach and public engagements events for all ages. In the past, this has been through film screenings, free Earth science family fun days, artistic competitions and science communication masterclasses

Plans for Earth Science Week 2024 are underway… keep your eyes peeled for exciting updates on how you and your family can get involved!
