The International Association for Geoscience Diversity (IAGD) has joined the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) as an International Associate. The IAGD's admission to the AGI Federation was formally approved by the AGI Executive Committee earlier this year.
Earth Science Week, a program of the American Geosciences Institute (AGI), is partnering with George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in Houston to exhibit more than 20 top photos entered in the celebration's 2017 photo contest, which recently explored the theme of "Earth and Human Activity Here." These eye-catching photos will be on display in Terminal B of the airport from June 24 through July 26, 2018.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has released a new publication, Petroleum and the Environment, to provide an accessible and information-rich overview of the many intersections between oil and gas operations and the environment.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is now accepting advance orders for the Earth Science Week 2018 Toolkit. The Toolkit contains educational materials for all ages that correspond to this year's event theme, "Earth as Inspiration."
The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) have agreed to mutually recognize continuing education units (CEUs). This arrangement allows European Geologist (EurGeol) title holders and AIPG Certified Professional Geologists (CPGs) to seek CEUs from either organization, significantly expanding the course offerings to both groups.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has published a consensus document which outlines strategies for identifying and addressing issues of workplace harassment in the geosciences. An ad hoc committee consisting of representatives from ten geoscience associations or institutions from across industry and academia was convened by AGI to examine the topic of harassment. This same committee ultimately drafted the consensus document, which was formally approved by the AGI Executive Committee on April 9, 2018.
For this year's Earth Science Week (October 14-20, 2018), the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is sponsoring four contests honoring this year’s theme, “Earth as Inspiration.” This year’s competitions will feature the traditional video, photography, visual arts, and essay contests.
