The image on this post was taken from the front cover of our magazine The Geographer, Autumn 2015. Our members often tell us that one of their favourite RSGS membership perks is receiving their copy of The Geographer every quarter. Each season we pick a different theme for The Geographer and then explore it in depth with the help of experts in the chosen field. Find out more about becoming a member of RSGS and the other perks available by clicking this link. http://rsgs.org/discoveringrs…/get-involved/become-a-member/

Congratulations to Roger Crofts!

The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) has announced the 2016 recipient of their prestigious CIEEM Medal is RSGS Chairman Professor Roger Crofts CBE FCIEEM. Roger has been awarded the Medal in recognition of his outstanding, lifelong contribution to environmental conservation, governance and management. On hearing the news, Roger said: “It is a great honour to be awarded the medal from our professional institute leading the vitally important work of improving standards in the management of our environment. As a septuagenarian, I am still learning how to influence politicians and policy makers so that the profession and its institute are rightly recognised as a leader in the field in its 25th anniversary year”.
