Theme: Science Is Society

The AGU Fall Meeting shares the research and knowledge that its community is building with the world so that it can foster a sustainable environment for future generations. It believes that:

  • Science is decision-making. Science must inform policy choices on diverse topics from the development of renewable energy systems to decisions about where and how to build homes to mitigate risk from natural disasters.
  • Science is understanding. Scientific progress requires contributions from diverse and cross-disciplinary groups of individuals to help identify challenges and develop equitable solutions.
  • Science is disruptive. Science advances when respectful debate provokes experts to think bigger, broader, and better. 
  • Science is personal. Each researcher is motivated to do this work for different reasons.
  • Science is a community. The AGU community must work together to support the research that informs our decisions and leads to a better world.

Science is Society.
