The IAG is proud to announce the official establishment of the International Geodiversity Day (IGD), by the 41st session of the UNESCO General Conference! From now on, each October 6th will be a day of worldwide celebration, aiming to raise awareness of public and policy on the importance of non-living nature: rocks, sediments, landforms, topography, hydrological processes… and much more!
