Government is often fundamentally a geographical issue. Whether it is developing a policy so that it applies equally to all parts of the country, designing efficient bin lorry routes or, more recently, locating COVID-19 test centres, geographers have a critical role to play.
This talk will cover what geographers working in government actually do, and provide an overview of the Government Geography Profession, whose remit is to support geographical expertise across the public sector.
Clare Hadley, FRGS, is a Deputy Head of the Government Geography Profession and has a day job with Ordnance Survey.
This talk has been organised by the South committee.
