As you are all aware, Geoweek is a week long event conducted under the auspices of the “Geoscience for All” initiative, a volunteer initiative of professional Earth Scientists to promote Earth Literacy – translating information on Earth science into a language and learning that can be understood by the common man.

A week full of learning and fun activities...and keeping in with the times, it will be virtual  this time. This year’s Geoweek will be held from 15th to 20th November 2021 and has much more to offer than last year.

The overall theme for the Geoweek this year is “Earth Science & Sustainability”. The week will see a range of activities like Talks, Exhibitions, Contests, Quizzes and Workshops.
