Who do you know that likes Geography? Trick question! The answer is everybody. Geography encompasses so much of our lives that it's impossible not to like some aspect of it. Do you have friends who are animal/nature lovers or who love the outdoors or extreme sports or who are fascinated by volcanoes/earthquakes or who love to travel or who love maps? Then RSGS has something for them, whether its our quarterly magazine full of attention grabbing articles or our annual talks programme with over 100 talks on a huge range of subjects or our interactive visitor centre. Tag them in the comments section and get them involved! Let's spread the word about RSGS! Please share this post.
