The Society’s Monday night lectures are one of the most popular benefits for our Fellows and members. They’re a great opportunity to find out more about current geographical research and its impact on our lives, as well as to hear first-hand about the world’s different cultures. From polar adventures to hot desert trails, underwater worlds and even space exploration – there really is something for everyone.
However, we know that it’s not always possible to attend the lectures in person, so Fellows and members have exclusive access to recordings of them online. To avoid missing out, or if you simply want to watch a lecture again, log in to the website now and watch at your leisure.
Watch the video to hear Immediate Past President Nicholas Crane’s thoughts on our online lectures.
