The British Cartographic Society runs a yearly programme of fantastic events called Restless Earth Workshops, that happen all around the country. They are coordinated by Alice Gadney (info@silver7mapping.co.uk) and supported by Geography Ambassadors. Check out the current timetable for next academic year and get in touch with Alice if you'd like to help out.

Don't forget...

You're giving up your time to volunteer as a Geography Ambassador, so make sure you get the most out of it! Your activity can count towards lots of extra curricular things such as Duke of Edinburgh, university 'award' schemes, particular modules (such as the Geography in Education and Communicating Geography modules) as well as anything else relevant, so do make sure you use it to your advantage.
