Terms & Conditions

General

Astronomers for Planet Earth (A4E) is a grass-roots organization consisting of over 1300 astronomers, astronomy educators and enthusiasts from all over the world. While bound to our operating principles and code of conduct, each member of our organization is independent and fully responsible for their own actions. 

For the sake of convenience, this website and other publications sometimes refer simply to “A4E” when talking about one or more groups within the network. Similarly, the words “we”, “us” and “our” may also be used to refer to other entities in the A4E network and their respective volunteers.
