Although our buildings in London and Bath are closed due to COVID-19, the Society is very much open. Explore our wealth of journal, education and Library resources (plus much more) online today.

Outreach & Policy

We organise outreach events and activities in order to share our science widely, to inform public debate and inspire future geoscientists to address the challenges facing humanity. 

Our policy work aims is to raise awareness of geoscience considerations in UK policymaking for the benefit of science, profession and society and to seek out and maintain relationships with organisations both in the UK and around the world.


Activities range from our annual international celebration of geology - Earth Science Week - to exhibitions and themed projects.
