AGI Critical Issues Forums bring together leading experts from academia, government, industry, and other groups to discuss topics at the intersection of Earth science and public policy. The Forums highlight the essential role that geoscience information plays in policy decisions at all levels from the global to the local. These events, started in 2014, showcase the societal relevance of the geosciences to a broad audience while also providing opportunities for dialog and networking between geoscientists and decision makers at all levels.
 
We hope that you will join us October 27 and 28 for the Critical Issues Forum! Please contact Cassaundra Rose (crose@agiweb.org) with any questions.
