Description: Notice of Intent to award a grant to the American Geological Institute in support of the project entitled “Earth Science Week 2017: Focus on ‘Earth and Human Activity’ Theme”. Earth Science Week is an annual event sponsored by the American Geological Institute (AGI) and supported by its partner members. AGI has managed to build one of the premier outreach opportunities in the geoscience community. Events are held in all 50 states with a host of supportive activities taking place at science agencies, universities, museums, and other science-related facilities. This year’s theme, Earth and Human Activity, explores the relationship between humans and the planet we inhabit, including such questions as to how natural processes affect human life and history, and how humans impact natural systems. Earth Science Week learning resources and activities engage young people and others in exploring the Earth systems, including the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. This theme promotes public understanding and stewardship in many areas, including Earth science, energy, paleontology, water quality, conservation, and climate science.
