We promote

School competition

We want more geology in schools! A collection of exercises can be found in our "school"-tab. We also invite schools to participate in our annual competition with the chance to win a lesson with a real life geologist and a 10 000 SEK cash prize.

Contributors

Our entire operating budget is based on grants from donors. Together with our contributors, we wish to create a platform for geology in society. With greater numbers, we can do more to promote earth sciences.
