Our Ethos

Geographers are interdisciplinary innovators, shaping the future of our world and the story of our species. Geography is about learning how to understand the links between disciplines, and to use those links to develop new, world-changing discoveries. It is these people that the world needs, if we are to build a more socially and environmentally sensitive, informed and responsible, economically and politically stable society.

Our Vision

A world of interdisciplinary, geographical thinkers, who find innovative solutions to the interrelated environmental, social and technological challenges facing our planet in the 21st century.

Our Mission

To bring together talented student film-makers with the most forward-thinking researchers, educators and organisations in the geographical community, to create inspiring, open-access geography educational videos: developed as a cornerstone to the world-class UK curriculum, freely available to all and supporting the education of millions of students across the UK and abroad.

Our Objectives

  1. To develop engaging videos in partnership with world-leading universities, collaborating with geographers passionate about their subject and committed to inspiring the next generation.
  2. To support students in their journey from secondary school to university and societal roles that build on the study of geography, through partnerships with the most forward-thinking universities and educational organisations in the geographical community.

Our Strategy

Time for Geography brings together a unique community of geography academics, film-makers and educators, with experience from across the spectrum of geography. We work together to produce the best possible educational content, supported through partnerships with universities and organisations who share our vision. The mission of Time for Geography is further supported through contributions and engagement with our user-community of geographers, and by councils and land owners who enable us to film in geographically-important locations across the world.
