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. At Fall Meeting 2018, you’ll have an opportunity to get involved in science policy and build connections with federal policymakers in anticipation of the new policy landscape and be part of our Congressional Visits Day.

Congressional Visits Day will empower you to take action and effectively talk to your legislators about the policy issues that matter to you. AGU has the resources and experts to assist you in taking action and to effectively talk to your legislators about the policy issues that matter to you. Sign up today.

Following the midterm elections this November, a new Congress will be sworn-in in January 2019. We’ll see new members of Congress, new Congressional committee leadership, and new policy priorities.
