The EGU runs a substantial outreach programme, coordinated by the Outreach Committee.
- Increase public awareness of the scientific work of the EGU membership and facilitate dissemination of information beyond the geosciences community.
- Identify and highlight societal challenges that can be addressed by the EGU membership and harness the expertise of members to address societal needs.
- Establish and strengthen links between the EGU membership and policy- and decision-makers, primarily but not exclusively in Europe.
- Facilitate interactions and transfer of information within the geoscience community via newsletters, websites, data portals, bulletins, blogs, and social media.
- The membership of the Union and its component groups
- Geoscientists who are not Union members
- National or international geoscience societies, agencies and enterprises, both within and outside Europe
- People, institutions, organisations and scientific unions engaged in fields other than geosciences, both within and outside Europe
- Decision makers, the working media and the non-scientific public, primarily but not exclusively in Europe
