As the UK's learned society and professional body for geography, we champion and advance the discipline and work with many different audiences. We exist to enhance understanding of our world.
Geography has never been more important in helping us to understand our rapidly changing world.
The Younger Members’ Committee organise a programme of geographical events with a strong social element, aimed at both members and the wider public. The events provide an invaluable contribution to the Society’s London activities, providing an opportunity for like-minded individuals to meet each other and to engage with geographical topics in an informal atmosphere.
Attendees, and committee members, mostly fall into the 20-45 age group. Events are open to all, except wine tasting evenings and the Summer Garden Party, which are for over 18s.
Other regular events include informal drinks in the Map Room following the first Monday night lecture of each month, a Christmas quiz, an opportunity to experience the Society's Collections, and the annual Microlectures evening – a series of talks by members about recent journeys, every March.
The committee is currently chaired by Annabel Illingworth. If you would like to find out more, or get involved in the Younger Members’ Committee, please contact us.
An evening packed with tales of adventure and discovery to entertain and inspire.
