We all share a common planet. We depend on the Earth both as a place to live and as a resource for almost all aspects of our lives. As we are facing some of the biggest challenges in human history, we strongly depend on forming a better understanding of the Earth and finding ways to use its resources more efficiently and responsibly. Science can help us with these challenges.This section of Frontiers for Young Minds includes articles that span from the understanding of our home planet, including earth science, marine science, climate science, and environmental science, to our use of its resources, including agricultural sciences, sustainable and environmental engineering, energy and renewable energy, green chemistry, innovative materials, and sustainability science. As many of these areas are underpinned and strongly linked to the broader chemical and physical sciences as well as engineering, articles from scientists across subject areas in these disciplines, whose work helps to study and explore the earth and its resources, are also included.Earth Sciences wants to provide the most up-to-date and relevant research to the next generation, who will live on Earth, continue to use its resources, and study present and new planet-wide questions.
