We bring together people who are interested in geography – in a deeper understanding of the world around them. We organise a diverse programme of lectures and trips. We are passionate about geographical education, and run an Australia-wide school competition. We always have a major project on the go.
May Lecture: 3 May 2016, 7:30 pm
“To promote and stimulate the study of geography: reflections on RGSQ’s mission” presented by Kath Berg
At the May meeting, Kath Berg will be presented with the Thomson Medal. This will be followed by the Thomson Address. Kath Berg was RGSQ’s Administrator from 1989 to 2015 and will be well known to many of our members.
Kath will look back at the work of the Society over her 28 years and reflect on the broad range of activities undertaken during that time to ‘promote and stimulate the study of geography’. She will also look at what has not been done, and why, and what might be done in the future.
For a throwback to the past, have a look at the picture below with Kath Berg, Audrey Johnston and Eric Savage at the City Mall display during the 1990 Geography Awareness Week.
