Each year we celebrate International EarthCache Day on the first Sunday
of Earth Science Week and the last day of World Space Week.. In 2014 that day is Sunday 12 October, the day immediately after the 3rd International EarthCache Event!
To help us celebrate we ask people to either run an event cache
through Geocaching.com, or attend an event and tell others about how
much fun visiting and developing EarthCaches can be.
We would love to see photographs and hear news of your events. You can do so either through the geocaching forums, or email us here.
For future Earth Science Week dates and themes (and thus, future International EarthCache Day dates), please see AGI's Earth Science Week home-page.
World Space Week is the largest public space event on Earth, with over 1,000 events in 80 countries each year.
In 1999, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared the week of 4-10 October to be World Space Week.
Each year World Space Week celebrates the contributions of space science, engineering and technology to life on Earth and the betterment of the human condition, and each year we encourage EVERYONE to celebrate by creating or joining a World Space Week event.
EarthCache Day has been accepted as an official World Space Week event and the World Space Week Association would like to ask anyone who is celebrating EarthCache day to also register your event on the World Space Week Global calendar and help us to celebrate the connection between the Earth and Space.
