  Information - ES8 Education and Outreach in the Earth- and Space Sciences

Event Information
Earth- and space sciences are essential fields of research for
understanding our environment, our daily lives and the future of our
existence. However, the number of young people that consider science
careers is decreasing and for a civilization relying on science and
technology this is not promising. This is one reason why the role of
education and outreach activities, both on national and international
level, is vital. Another reason is that the younger generation needs to be
prepared for a life in a changing environment and understand the conditions
and possibilities of personal actions. The fundament for this is laid out in
schools. The aim of this session is to bring together people working in
different EGU topic environments (e.g. schools, institutions, universities,
international organizations, museums, science centers, planetaria, etc.) to
exchange ideas and experiences in education and outreach. Contributions
regarding outreach activities and educational resources especially in
regard to international cooperation are particularly welcome.
