Science Policy

At AGU, we work to empower scientists to engage in policy and elevate the profile of Earth and space science among policymakers.

Science today faces several pressing policy issues: the questioning of science’s role in federal decision-making, lack of funding for the sciences, and scientific integrity inquiries.

Now more than ever, it is important for scientists to better understand the federal policymaking process and engage with their legislators.

Apply for AGU’s Voices for Science program. This initiative supports and fosters a network of exceptional science-communication and science-policy advocates based in the United States to amplify the voice of science across the country and build valuable dialogues and relationships with communities, journalists, and stakeholders. Applications close 1 February.
