Gordon Grant, President of Earth and Planetary Surface Processes section and Council Leadership Team, summarizes the AGU Council March 2021 meeting with a haiku.
We applaud the Biden Administration’s steps to remedy these challenges, as well as the disproportionate health and environmental effects suffered by underrepresented minorities.
The AGU Honors & Recognition Committee has made some updates to the program that will better showcase the depth and breadth of our community’s achievements around the world. We are also grateful to our community for their commitment to make our Honors program as diverse and inclusive as possible.
The Biden Administration is starting us on the right path to improve human and planetary health today and for future generations.
While we mourn Dr. Eagleson’s passing, we know his legacies will endure. His contributions to AGU and our community are remembered with great appreciation.
The issues that this team will be addressing – from COVID-19 to the climate crisis to removing systemic racism – are paramount to re-establishing a civil society that values science and facts. AGU’s community is ready to assist to foster a safe and healthy planet for all.
