Geographical information and research has never been more relevant to policy decisions on a range of issues from migration to climate change. Geographers are at the heart of debates about the future of places, environments and communities and the connections between them.
Geography is fundamental to an understanding of the greatest and most pressing challenges facing us today. We share advances in geographical knowledge with policy-makers and other professionals by making it accessible and engaging to non-specialists. The Society's case-studies and policy briefings showcase geographical knowledge, while our meetings and events bring geographers, policy-makers and other professionals together to share perspectives.
The Society is a leading advocate and influential voice for geography in the UK for:
The benefits of geography in primary and secondary education.
Geography in research and higher education.
The workforce of professional geographers.
High quality, safe fieldwork and outdoor education for all.
We organise a range of meetings to bring together geographers, policy-makers, business leaders and other professionals and demonstrate the value of geography in discussions about some of the greatest challenges facing society today.
