No More Time to Waste: Moving Science to Action at Scales that Matter

In the last two decades, a significant fraction of the geoscience and global environmental sciences communities have seen a shift in thinking – from science as its own fundamental goal, to science for understanding change, to science that supports and drives action.

Geo-Congressional Visits Day 2016

GeoCVD Logo
Follow along #GeoCVD2016 on Twitter and Instagram to see what fellow geoscientists are doing for the Geoscience Congressional Visits Day. Yesterday the participating scientists were given an orientation briefing on how Congress works, and how laws can affect the geosciences both nationally, and at the state level. Today they are touring the House and Senate where they are meeting with their legislators. This annual event is hosted by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the Geological Society of America (GSA), the Seismological Society of America (SSA), the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the American Geosciences Institute (AGI). AGU has allowed "Guest-Grammers" to share their experiences at Geo-CVD over Instagram. Geo-CVD has made an impact on many scientists, usually as their first experience at the policy-making level. 

Overview of the 35th International Geological Congress

35th IGC Logo
The 35th International Geological Congress was hosted last week in Cape Town South Africa and several AGI member organizations were involved hosting sessions, town halls and providing speakers. By far, the biggest story was the recommendation of the Working Group on the Anthropocene to formally designate the Anthropocene as an official geological epoch. This story was picked up globally by many news outlets including the Economist, Science Magazine, the Guardian, the BBC, and the Japan Times among many others.
