EdGEO is a program designed by geoscience professional to promote Earth Science education and provide teachers with enhanced Earth science knowledge, classroom resources and increased confidence. By providing educational opportunities for today's teachers and, through them, their students, EdGEO seeks to cultivate a heightened awareness and appreciation of our planet. The expected result is an improved capacity on the part of Canadians to understand the Earth and to make wise decisions, especially with regard to the use of its mineral and energy resources, the maintenance and remediation of the environment, and response to geological hazards.

EdGEO is coordinated by the Canadian Geoscience Education Network of the Canadian Geoscience Council (CGC) and currently funded by CGC, the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists, the Geological Association of Canada and the Mineralogical Association of Canada.
