Centennial Celebration Day of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG)

IUGG was founded in Brussels, Belgium, on 28 July 1919 at the General Assembly of the International Research Council (now the International Science Council) to coordinate international research in the geosciences.
Since that time, IUGG’s activities are dedicated to advancing, promoting, and communicating knowledge of the Earth system, its space environment, and the dynamical processes causing change. IUGG encourages the application of this knowledge to societal needs, such as mitigation of natural hazards and disaster risk reduction, water security and mineral resources, climate change and environmental preservation.

In 1946, IUGG signed a working agreement with UNESCO, and since that time has been cooperating closely with UNESCO and its scientific programmes.
