AGI connects Earth, science, and people by serving as a unifying force for the geoscience community. With a network of 51 member societies, AGI represents more than a quarter-million geoscientists. No matter your individual discipline, AGI's essential programs and services will strengthen your connection to the geosciences.
AGI was founded in 1948, under a directive of the National Academy of Sciences, as a network of associations representing geoscientists with a diverse array of skills and knowledge of our planet. The Institute provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society’s use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment.
