Our partners are organisations who share our belief that the future of geoscience depends, to a considerable extent, on an educated public that realises the value of Earth science information in making informed decisions about land use and the sustainable use of Earth’s resources. The vitality of Earth science also depends on our ability to inspire students to study geoscience and for students to make it a career choice.
