From the American Geosciences Institute, About Earth Science Week:

“Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. This year's Earth Science Week will be held from October 13 - 19, 2019 and will celebrate the theme ‘Geoscience Is for Everyone.’ The coming year's event will emphasize both the inclusive potential and the importance of the geosciences in the lives of all people.”

From the National Science Foundation, About Earth Sciences:

“Earth science is the study of the Earth's structure, properties, processes, and four and a half billion years of biotic evolution.  Understanding these phenomena is essential to maintenance of life on the planet.  The expanding world population demands more resources; faces increasing losses from natural hazards; and releases more pollutants to the air, water, and land.   Sustaining our existence requires scientific understanding of the natural materials and processes linking the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere.  Life prospers or fails at the surface of the Earth where these environments intersect.”
