ED21E:
Building the Global Talent Pool in Earth and Space Science I


Session ID#: 9118

Session Description:
Developing, educating, and nurturing future geoscientists around the world is an essential part of AGU’s mission to promote discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity.  While both geoscience and education are international enterprises, we face different challenges in different parts of the world.  Access to education, the shape of the workforce, barriers to inclusivity, and resources can all play a role.   This session will showcase the diversity of ways that AGU and its members are working to build the global talent pool in Earth and Space sciences.
