“There has long been under-investment in environmental issues, and especially climate change, by philanthropists. This reflects, in part, that the remit of many charities, trusts and foundations was set decades ago." So said our friend at Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), Joe Smith 👇

An extremely rare gold medal awarded for outstanding service of a humanitarian nature is expected to fetch over £6,000 when it goes under the hammer on June 5 in Edinburgh at Lyon and Turnbull.

This 22-carat gold Livingstone Medal, named in honour of the great Scottish Explorer, was presented in 1923 to Marion Newbigin. And since then, other recipients of the Medal have included the likes of Neil Armstrong, Sir David Attenborough, HRH The Princess Royal and Michael Palin.

The Livingstone Medal is awarded periodically by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society in recognition of outstanding public service in which geography has played an important part. It was featured on the BBC Antiques Roadshow in 2013.

Most of the proceeds of the sale of this medal are being donated to our charity, the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, so please spread the word 👇

Mercury was born with all the right ingredients, but long ago it was dramatically flung into its current orbit in the grip of the Sun where all hope of life was lost.

Yesterday on Everest. Nepal and Tibet/China need to limit the number of climbers on the mountain with a London Marathon style lottery for climbing permits. https://t.co/RERjSgnvXh RoyalScotGeoSoc photo
