The EGU runs a substantial outreach programme, coordinated by the Outreach Committee, in order to promote the geosciences and the solar system sciences beyond the scope set by the By-Laws of the Union. This includes but is not necessarily restricted to:
- people, institutions, organisations or scientific unions engaged in fields other than geosciences, both within and outside Europe,
- with national or international geosciences societies outside of Europe, to mutual benefit,
- social problems related to geosciences, to decision makers and the non-scientific public, primarily, but not exclusively in Europe,
- International Conferences and Workshops on topics of geosciences with significant socio-economic impact for regions outside of Europe, to be held in and jointly organised with scientists/institutions from these regions.
