Increase awareness of the IUGG's role in the promotion of Earth and space sciences via international cooperation, and increase public interest in scientific achievements of the last century.
Raise awareness of the IUGG's role in promoting and enhancing fundamental research in the geosciences, in understanding the contributions the Earth and space sciences make to everyday life, and in solving crucial geo-problems in collaboration and coordination with major international or intergovernmental initiatives and programs.
Raise awareness of the important regulatory role of IUGG in geosciences, particularly in establishing the terms and conditions for international research cooperation, setting scientific standards and nomenclature, preparing universal tools, and bringing state-of-the-art science to less-affluent countries through capacity building.
Encourage greater collaboration with partner organizations, private industry, national and regional agencies.
Encourage early-career geoscientists to participate in international science activities. Encourage the education of future generations of geoscientists, taking into account challenges and inequities such as gender inequalities, the need to offer education to individuals with diverse backgrounds, the need for greater cross-disciplinary knowledge, etc.
Support the use of science as a tool for education, development and science diplomacy.
