The Geographical Association (GA) is the leading subject association for teachers of geography. As a registered charity our mission is to ‘further geographical knowledge and understanding through education’. The Association is a lively community of practice with over a century of innovation behind it and an unrivalled understanding of geography teaching.

The British Society for Geomorphology is a partner organisation with the GA and works closely with the Physical Geography Special Interest Group, and Duncan Hawley currently represents the GA on the Outreach and Education sub-Committee. This page will be updated after each sub-Committee meeting with the latest news and opportunities for members.

Please contact Duncan to discuss any of these opportunities [email protected]
