About Geography Society
We welcome students from all years to socialise and engage with different events throughout the year. For geography students this is a great opportunity to socialise with students of all years across the geography degrees.
This society is not just for geography students but for any student with a passion and enjoyment of geography. Our current inclusivity rep studies primary teaching and the range of different courses within the membership can include geography, environmental science or law.
Membership is only £5 for the year or £3.50 per semester!
Membership makes sure you know about all the events happening and can get discounted prices for the larger events which non-members can also attend. When membership is paid you are added to a Facebook group or we organise the best way to contact you about events.
Socials! These are held each Wednesday with venue and theme announced each week on our membership Facebook group.
We also have lots of sober socials throughout the year with a range including fundraising events, film nights, bowling and going out for walks.
Each year we hold Christmas and Summer Formals which are attended by students and lecturers to celebrate the year.
We also collaborate with other societies and clubs to bring events such as our Malvern Hill Walk.
Beacons Development Charity offer a range of volunteering opportunities throughout the year and the main event is their annual year conference held in the Hive which we are involved with some of the planning and then on day volunteering.
Last year we raised money and twinned a toilet in Malawi as part of raising awareness for World Toilet Day
We also raised money for the WWF to help reduce the impact of humans on the environment.
As a society we also worked with other groups to collaborate on events such as our Malvern Hills Walk with Student Minds and Nature
Some of the committee helped organised the annual Beacons Development Charity Conference held in the Hive and the society volunteered on the day.
Last year we were privileged to be nominated for Society Promoter of the Year and Most Charitable Society of the Year at the Union Awards.
If you have any ideas for events you would like us to do or questions feel free to message anyone of the committee
