  • Letter (word) from Adalberto Vallega (President of IGU) to encourage the IGU National Committees to convene events promoting geography vis-à-vis the public and the media on a local scale. In this respect, the formula which is the easiest in operational terms, and socially the most attractive, seems to be the National Geographical Festival (NGF)...

  • International Year of Planet Earth: A particularly important action that is fundamental to the successful implementation of the Year is the establishment of National Committees of the Year of Planet Earth. At the time of writing, 10 such National Committees are up and running (in Austria, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Mongolia, Namibia, New Zealand, Sweden and the UK). In twenty other countries such Committees are being actively developed and the process has been initiated in a further 13 countries. Such National Committees are independent bodies while, at the same time, having links with the International Corporation. The success of the International Year very much depends on quality and range of activity at the national level, not least because of the need to attract, in a sustained way, the attention and  engagement of both public and political life at all levels.
    We call upon all members of the geoscience  community around the world to recognize the opportunities offered by this global initiative, and to provide their support at all scales, from global to local, to make this a ‘once in a lifetime’ event.
