We are pleased to announce that nominations for positions on the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum Committee for 2022-2023 are now open.
Current postgraduate students are warmly encouraged to consider standing for one of the vacant roles. Candidates should be current Postgraduate Fellows of the Society, or ready to apply for Fellowship once elected.
The Postgraduate Forum (PGF) exists to represent postgraduates from across geography and beyond. Its activities are led by an elected committee of Postgraduate Fellows of the Society who each serve a one-year term, and who work to deliver a programme of events, resources and support.
This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with the work of the Postgraduate Forum, helping to shape the support that the Society provides for postgraduate members and build a community of postgraduates with valuable opportunities and resources for professional development.
Full details of the vacant positions and how to stand for election are on the PGF website, along with testimonials from serving committee members outlining what they’ve gained from their time on the PGF committee.
Nominations close at midday on Thursday 14 April. Committee members will then be elected by online vote following the PGF AGM. Voting will open on Friday 29 April and close on Friday 21 May.

The Society, in partnership with Endurance22, have produced a set of educational resources which allow pupils to explore changes in polar exploration from the early 20th century to today, and Antarctica’s unique frozen environment.
A new exhibition, The art of politics: representing environmental challenges in the UK’s overseas territories, is now available for Fellows and members to view in the Director’s Gallery.
Through Teacher Tap, the Society recently conducted a survey of approximately 2,000 primary geography teachers to understand what support they have received for teaching geography during their careers.
As part of the Society’s commitment to support teachers to provide meaningful, fun and curriculum relevant fieldwork experiences, we are running a range of training events over the coming months for both primary and secondary geography teachers.
