The Society’s mission to ‘advance geographical science’ is at the core of our work and 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.
We are working with the project teams to disseminate the findings of the research to geography students in the UK and internationally through educational resources, to professionals through our Environment-Society event series, and the wider public through our public events programme.
