We are inviting delegates to present on a short and inspiring video promoting the study of geography, at the Geographical Association Annual Conference (6-7 April).

Leading up to the conference, we are inviting people from across the geographical community to help author the script for this video.

We have started with some of our ideas and you can use the form at the bottom of this page to submit your own ideas.

If you are attending the conference, please come and introduce yourself at stand #15 to get involved in presenting.

We will then bring together our best footage to create a video involving as many geographers as possible, showing their passion and love for the subject, and promoting it to the next generation.

In partnership with the GA, the video will be freely available, for use on school open days and other opportunities to promote geography.

(This page will close at 11:00 pm on the 2 April, when we will finalise the script.)

Video script

Geography is so much more than a school subject or academic discipline. It defines our everyday lives. From the moment we are born, a journey of interactions with people and places begins. All of our day-to-day activities unfold over space, place and time, putting Geography at the heart of human endeavour.

In a world where careers are becoming increasingly specialised, there are those not afraid to seek the big picture, those not afraid to adventure outside their bubble in search of new challenges and a greater understanding of the world.

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.

They are geographers.
