The Outreach and Education Sub-Committee is here to support members in sharing and promoting geomorphology as widely as possible outside traditional academic circles and our aim is to improve understanding of geomorphology in society.

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 and share their own activities and resources, by grant funding, workshops and spaces to share them. We work alongside the BSG’s Committee for Professional Geomorphology, as well as the Royal Geographical Society and Geographical Association. We also manage the Marjorie Sweeting Dissertation Prize for the best undergraduate dissertation in geomorphology each year.

Please explore the links below and feel free to contact if you have any ideas or questions.


Learn about the latest outreach and education news, including reports on funded projects, the Marjorie Sweeting Dissertation Prize and upcoming workshops and events.
