The Society’s academic publications are profiled through a number of exciting events at this year’s RGS-IBG Annual International Conference.
Geo: Geography and Environment will sponsor an interactive plenary panel on Digital Data: Opening up the Weather Archive, convened by Georgina Endfield (The University of Liverpool), Lucy Veale (The University of Liverpool) and Sarah Davies (Aberystwyth University) on Wednesday 30 August. An associated exhibition featuring materials from the Society’s Collections will be on display, and a Data Paper will be published in advance of Conference. All Geo papers are free to access online.

Matthew’s lecture is entitled Safe space across borders: from geopolitical projection to refugee health protection, and Jo Sharp (University of Glasgow) responds as discussant.
