Every day, the news is full of stories which are geographical in nature. Climate change, population dynamics, conflict, development, health, trade, inequality, the biosphere, ecosystems, natural resource limits, energy, urbanisation, sustainability – all these issues, and more, are ‘geography’.
We believe that people with a better knowledge of geography develop a better understanding of place, together with a greater insight into sustainability, equality and the world in general. That is why we run public talks and events, welcome people to our visitor and education centre, and work in partnership with a range of academic and other organisations – to increase geographical understanding and problem-solving.
And we believe that everyone is a ‘geographer’
