The new EGU colouring books!

The new EGU colouring books!

Every year EGU tries to provide more ways for people to interact with us and in 2021 we were delighted when one of our Artists in Residence Kelly Stanford, working together with members of our EDI Committee created a free colouring book! It was so popular that we decided to make two more, one with simpler drawings based on common Earth, planetary and space related concepts, nominally targeted at younger children (suggested around 8 and under), though actually it can be used by people of any age, and one that is more complicated based on photos from EGU’s open access science image database: imaggeo!

You may recognise some of these images as previous winners of the EGU’s Photo Competition, but there are two images for each of our 22 scientific Divisions – I wonder if you can work out which ones are which?!

If you are attending EGU24 onsite in Vienna, you might be able to snag one of these books in hard copy, but otherwise feel free to download the pdfs of the colouring books and have a great time.

Don’t forget to tag us on any art you post on social media with the hashtag #EGUart!


For more information about resources for children and families at EGU24 please visit the conference website or read this blog with some great advice for parents who want to bring children to the meeting.
