AGU wants your help in shaping the organization’s future!
AGU has started to divest its portfolio to strengthen our commitment to mission-related investments and to better align with our strategic plan, which places a strong focus on a sustainable future. This divestment started in October 2021 and will take up to 18 months to complete. As a sign of further alignment with our vision of a sustainable future, AGU Board of Directors has also asked its Finance and Investment Committee to chart a path toward carbon neutrality for all AGU’s investments.
2020 was an unforgettable year – from the global pandemic causing a worldwide shutdown to the racial reckoning around the world. Throughout the year, when people wanted to engage on Earth and space science issues, AGU was here to support us…I encourage you to read the Annual Report for more details on our projects and programs. On behalf of the Earth and space sciences community, thank you for your continued support.
On behalf of the Leadership Development / Governance Committee and the AGU Board, I am pleased to announce that David Shaw has agreed to serve as General Secretary through 2022.
As AGU’s president, I have the opportunity to award Presidential Citations. This year, we are honored to announce the recipients are the teams who created “Call for a Robust Anti-Racism Plan for the Geosciences” and “No Time for Silence.”
We are pleased to announce our 2020 Bridge program partners, listed in alphabetical order below.
