An opportunity for our School Members to experience our popular lecture series.

Town centres are much more than places to go shopping; they are places to meet and socialise that provide a sense of belonging for local communities. Declining retail poses fundamental questions to the future of places where we live, work and socialise. How have these places been managed so far - and how can geographers envisage brighter futures for their creative, social, cultural and economic development?

Booking for this event was available to School Members and Young Geographer Members only. This event is now fully booked and we are not operating a waiting list.

Bridging the gap

Bridging the gap events provide sixth form students the experience of what studying geography at university level is like. With four different seminars, led by our Geography Ambassadors, the day aims to replicate a ‘university geography’ experience, with each session directly based around a topic being studied at university.
 
The session groups are small (maximum of 10 students) to give students a ‘seminar’ type experience, providing them with the opportunity to be more involved in the session. Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 40 places for each day.

Venue: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), Kensington, London, SW7 2AR

Cost: Free

Booking and tickets

Bookings are currently closed, although more events will be announced for next academic year soon.

Please note: bookings must come from individual students. We will not accept block school bookings, although teachers can advertise the event to their pupils.
