Vanessa Collingridge

Geography has a vital role to play in helping us to understand and address this century’s crucial global concerns of environmental sustainability, social equity and economic balance. Scotland has long been at the forefront of geographical exploration, and the RSGS has been working since 1884, with the support of thousands of members, to inspire people to want to find out more about the world.
