Earth Science Week 2019

Earth Science Week 2019
Earth Science Week 2019 in the UK and Ireland took place from Saturday 12 to Sunday 20 October 2019, with the theme 'Geoscience is for everyone'.

Earth Science Week is an annual international celebration of the geology all around us. Through public events like geowalks, hands-on activities, talks and open days, organisations and individuals aim to raise public awareness of geology and how it affects our lives. 

Coordinated by the American Geoscience Institute in the US, and the Geological Society of London in the UK and Ireland, the week also takes place in an increasing number of countries around the world.
