Fourth Industrial Revolution Inquiry

We highlight the importance of geospatial technologies and geographical data to the UK's economy, and, in relation to this, the role of geography and geographers in future industrial development

Revised education for sustainable development (ESD) guidance

Our response to this QAA consultation welcomes the revised guidance and specific competencies, and argues that geospatial and environmental data skills should be given greater attention.

Career Guidance for Young People

We argue that the statutory requirement for careers guidance should be extended, and welcome the proposed extension of advice to Year 8 pupils

Allocation of science and research funding

We endorse the dual support approach to funding, and argue for the ringfenced AR funding consistent with geography's accepted part-STEM status.
