The role being played by NASA in preparing for the observance of the International Space Year (ISY) is discussed. Key themes of the inaugural meeting of the Space Agency Forum on ISY (SAFISY), held in Durham, NH, in April 1988, are examined. The thirteen different SAFISY Earth science projects, which are using space technologies to assess such environmental issues as ozone depletion, deforestation, and global warming, are described briefly. An ISY educational campaign, stressing both the scientific results of space exploration and the benefits of space applications, is discussed.<>
