Earth Science Week 2019

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 & Ireland, the week takes place in an increasing number of countries around the world.



The core objectives of Earth Science Week are:

  • To engage people in discovering the Earth sciences.
  • To remind people that Earth science is all around us.
  • To promote opportunities available in Earth Science.
  • To encourage geoscientists to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about the Earth.
  • To work with others to illustrate Earth science as a cross-curriculum subject.

The Geological Society of London ran their annual photography competition ‘Geoscience is for Everyone’ and this year, for the first time, asked entrants to share their photographs of geoscience from all over the world. The winners have now been announced and their incredible captures can be viewed here.

First place was awarded to Ingrid Demaerschalk, ‘Antarctic Reflections’ (The Gerlache Strait, Antarctica).
