Do you know someone interested in discovering more about the world’s peoples, places and environments? Membership of the Society could be the perfect present.
The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is the UK’s learned society and professional body for geography. Established in 1830, the Society promotes and advances geographical science.
Today, the Society runs one of the UK’s most popular lecture programmes alongside a full regional programme of lectures, debates and field trips; publishes a number of leading scholarly publications and the popular Geographical magazine; supports geography, including fieldwork and expeditions, at school, university and in the workplace; and works as an effective advocate for the discipline. It is also home to the world’s largest private geographical Collections of maps, photographs and artefacts, spanning more than 500 years and accessible to all.
Forming the heart of a vibrant community of people interested in geography, travel and exploration, the Society enjoys the support of c. 16,000 Fellows and members in some 100 countries. Membership offers the opportunity to benefit from the huge number of resources, events and activities provided by the Society and to meet people who share the same passion as you. It also directly supports the Society’s activities as a charity.
