The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) is pleased to announce a new initiative: Serving Our Communities. From local communities to international efforts, education and geoscience both play important roles in our society. The Serving our Communities initiative celebrates the way that geoscience educators and students are engaging with local, national and global communities.
Check out the inspirational stories of the ways that your colleagues are serving communities from service learning projects that focus on informing policy to working with local industry. Included on the website are links to resources to support use of service learning, community-based research and engaging societal discussions in class. NAGT members are engaging with their communities in all sorts of ways and now more than ever, these efforts need to be acknowledged and shared.
