IUGS is one of 30 scientific union Members of ICSU—one of eight Unions who share interests in earth science related topics—and represents an estimated 1 million earth scientists around the world.

Invited participants at the event included: UNESCO Assistant Director General for Natural Sciences Dr Gretchen Kalonji; French Academy of Sciences representative Dr Marie-Lise Chanin; IUGS French National Committee Chair Pierre Mauriaud; and many other heads of international organizations, learned societies and geological surveys.

ICSU's Executive Director, Deliang Chen, congratulated IUGS and remarked that: ‘since its establishment, and its membership of the ICSU family, IUGS has proved to be a vital and responsive champion of discovery and debate in the earth sciences.'
