Get Involved

Geography has a vital role to play in helping us to better understand our world and address our most challenging social, economic and environmental problems. Scotland has long been at the forefront of geographical exploration, and the RSGS has been working since 1884, with the support of thousands of enthusiastic members, to inspire people to want to find out more about the world.

As an educational charity, we rely on our members and other supporters to help us deliver a wide range of activities. Please support our mission to promote a greater understanding of the wider world.
