AGI’s Geoscience Policy and Critical Issues programs plan a number of events every year that bring policymakers, decision-makers, and geoscientists together.
In collaboration with other scientific societies and coalitions, the AGI Geoscience Policy Program hosts congressional briefings to educate and inform policy makers on relevant geoscience topics and issues. These briefings feature scientific speakers from government, academic, and industry sectors. Please view past and upcoming congressional briefing notices on our website and feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Interested in sharing the value of your science with federal or local decision makers? Read more about our Geosciences Congressional Visits Days (Geo-CVD) – a two day event where you travel to Washington D.C. to talk about the importance of your research.
The Policy & Critical Issues programs host webinars on a variety of topics that bring geoscientists and decision makers together to discuss potential solutions to challenges at the interface of geoscience and society.

AGI Critical Issues Forums bring together leading experts from academia, government, industry, and other groups to discuss topics at the intersection of geoscience 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.
