"Geodiversity is for Everyone" - theme announced for IGD 2023

On 6 October, International Geodiversity Day (IGD), will be celebrated under the theme of "Geodiversity is for Everyone". The theme reflects that geodiversity is all around us, and effects the lives of all people wherever they are in the world. It is also an opportunity to promote widening participation in geoscience education and careers.

This year's theme builds on the success of IGD 2022, with organisations around the world organising more than 250 events. These included school visits in India, a display on geodiversity at UNESCO HQ, an open day at Chile's National Geology and Mining Service, and a guided walk up Mount Popa in Myanmar. IGD was proclaimed by UNESCO in 2021, following a grassroots campaign by geoscience organisations around the world. Geodiversity is all around us, impacting many areas of society, and IGD is a worldwide celebration to bring people together in promoting the many aspects of geodiversity.
