Join us on Friday 9 April for the International Night of Geography, or GeoNight.
First proposed in 2017 by the French National Geographical Committee (CNFG), GeoNight aims to highlight the work of geography and geographers through a range of events taking place on the same evening across the world. The events are an opportunity for the public to become more familiar with geographical concepts and studies, and to make geographical research more accessible.
Join us for our own GeoNight event The Roaring 20s? where a panel of geographical experts will be discussing whether we are heading towards a post-pandemic boom period, what global recovery strategies should be deployed, and whether the pandemic has increased the appetite for global action.
The discussion will be chaired by Society Fellow and BBC journalist Martine Croxall. Our contributors include: Dr Vicky Johnson, a Lecturer in Geography at the Open Univeristy; Dr Jonathan Reades, an Associate Professor in Spatial Data Science at UCL; Dr Oli Mould, a Lecturer in Human Geography at Royal Holloway; and Dr Dianna Smith who is a Lecturer in GIS and Health Geography at the University of Southampton.
The Roaring 20s? is an online event taking place at 7.00pm on Friday 9 April. Find out more and book now.

We are delighted to be partnering with a number of geographers, leading UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) funded research projects, to further our understanding of the world, its people, places and environments.
The Society has become a member of the Locus Charter, a proposed set of common international principles that can guide responsible practice when using location data.
The Society is delighted to be a partner of the Creative approaches to race and (in)security in the Caribbean and the UK (CARICUK) research project, which aims to transform discussions about race and anti-racism in UK higher education institutions.
This month we caught up with Dr Alicia Colson and Dr Sherezade Garcia Rangel to find out more about their projects as part of the Wiley Digital Archive Research Fellowship.
