The Outreach and Education sub-Committee is here to support members in sharing geomorphology more widely outside of academic circles. Our two strands cover outreach - the sharing of our science with the public - and education - promoting the teaching of our science at all levels. We aim to assist and equip members to develop their own activities and resources, and provide a space for them to share them.

The sub-Committee is responsible for the Outreach Award, allowing members to apply for up to £1000 to support activities that share, and help others to share, geomorphology. There are two calls a year with deadlines in September and February.

We also judge the highly competitive annual Marjorie Sweeting Award for outstanding undergraduate dissertation in geomorphology. Each year’s winners are given support to attend the Society’s annual meeting and invited to present their work.

The sub-Committee include members of our partner organisations, the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), and the Geographical Association. Both these organisations have opportunities for members to share geomorphology to a wide audience, and details of these can be found on their respective update pages.
