The Young Geographer web page is now live on our site. If you are considering writing for us or are interested in being part of the editorial team then this is the place for more information. We are really looking forward to receiving and reading your submissions so get involved! A quick reminder: You can be any age 30 and under, we want you to write about an issue that concerns you, your article can be between 200 and 700 words long and articles/applications for editorial team must be with us by January 8th. Good luck!
Today we are very excited to announce that in Spring 2016 we will be publishing a special edition of our acclaimed magazine The Geographer. This special edition will be called Young Geographer and will be written and edited by... you! Today we are inviting anybody aged 30 or under to submit articles to RSGS for inclusion in this special edition. The intention of the magazine is to give young people a voice around a range of areas of personal, national and global concern (especially those which are loosely geographical or educational in nature). These might include anything from housing, employment, health, education or job security to contributions about global debates on sustainable
development goals, migration, population, climate change or equality and conflict. In short anything which affects our future society, and therefore affects young people more than anyone.
We are also offering 4-5 young people the chance to edit The Young Geographer.
We will be releasing more information on our website tomorrow so this is just a sneak peak at what will be a very exciting project. For now get your thinking caps on and get drafting an article between 200 and 700 words on the topic of your choice. If you just can't wait for the website to update you can read our media release here. http://rsgs.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Young-Geographer1.pdf
