The Geological Society of London will bring together key stakeholders and representatives from the education, higher education, employer and non-profit sectors at Burlington House for a Geology Student Enrolment Summit.

This day-long event will centre on identifying and understanding the reasons behind a declining number of students enrolling on geoscience degrees in the United Kingdom, and how we as a community can address this.

The summit will help in designing and implementing an action plan that identifies the short-, medium-, and long-term interventions required to effectively raise student interest and uptake, and identify the group or groups best placed to lead on specific measures.

Call for contributions

In order for us to be best-placed to respond to the needs of the geological community, we are seeking your views on the issues you feel are contributing to the fall in undergraduate degree numbers, as well as the impacts this decline will have if left unaddressed.

The Society has set a deadline of Monday 8 June 2020 to receive your comments/evidence. Please submit any responses to outreach@geolsoc.org.uk.

The Society will both gather the evidence submitted and utilise the work of the summit participants on the day to produce a white paper, detailing an assessment and an action plan, which will be released shortly after the summit.

Registration

If you wish to take part/attend as an individual or as the representative of your organisation, please email us at outreach@geolsoc.org.uk and explain (in no more than 250 words) how you plan on positively contributing.

Please note that, due to limited numbers/capacity, only one representative from a particular organisation/institution will be permitted, in order to ensure that the group is small enough to effectively advance our goals.

Virtual meeting details will be sent to those selected to participate.
