In support of this objective, the AGC has issued a series of position statements on a range of topics of national significance to the geosciences. The position statements are intended to provide a platform from which the AGC can inform the geoscience community and the general public of the Council's broad approach to specific issues and serve as a framework within which relevant policies, initiatives and actions can be identified, developed and pursued.
The AGC has drawn up position statements for each of the following topics:
- Primary and Secondary Education
- Tertiary Education
- Research and Innovation
- Standards and Ethics
- The Community
- Geoscience Priorities
- Federal Election Platform 2001
The statements outlined in this document are of a dynamic nature and will therefore be reviewed and updated regularly. The views of geoscientists belonging to member societies are welcomed in this process.
