International Geodiversity Day
Sat Oct 15, 5:30 PM

Recognizing the importance of geoscience in solving major challenges that humanity is facing today, UNESCO’s General Conference proclaimed 6 October as International Geodiversity Day.Despite the multitude of services that geodiversity provides, most people are not aware of how dependent on it we are as a society. This is why we need to promote a better understanding of the Earth’s dynamic processes, so that citizens can make informed policy choices that will foster a more sustainable society. The Society to Save Rocks, the lone NGO working for the preservation and conservation of the 2500 million year old rocks of the Deccan Plateau, now in it's 26th year celebrates the 1st International Geodiversity Day reminding us of our interdependence on Nature and the urgency to respect Mother Earth.
