Join the Committee to celebrate yet another successful year for the Society’s North West region. This year we are delighted to welcome as guest speaker, RGS-IBG Director, Professor Joe Smith.
Professor Smith has more than 20 years of experience in environment and geography research, first at the University of Cambridge and then at the Open University. He says "The breadth and scale of the Society’s reach is extraordinary, which makes this a rare and compelling role. We are well positioned with an ambitious and comprehensive strategy in place, a loyal membership base and secure finances. I am looking forward to taking the Society on to the next phase of its illustrious history."
Taking the audience on a breathtaking journey across the continent, filmmaker Reza Pakravan will share stories of the tense frontiers, enduring traditions and ordinary people living where climate change has hit hardest: the Sahel.
