AGU's Thriving Earth Exchange helps scientists and communities form collaborative, impactful partnerships. Community science projects launched through Thriving Earth Exchange use science to advance community priorities and are part of a growing movement toward engaged, community-driven science.
Start a Project
Communities and community groups of all kinds are invited to partner with AGU's Thriving Earth Exchange to design and launch a project that unites community and science to advance community priorities.
Getting started is simple, and the first step is to apply online. Share your priority with us, and we will help you develop a project. There is no cost to communities to participate other than your time. Expressions of interest are accepted and developed on a rolling basis until November 1 for our next launch. (Communities who contact us early receive priority for the upcoming project launch.)
