The Geographical Association (GA) is a subject association with the core charitable object of furthering geographical knowledge and understanding through education. It is a lively community of practice with over a century of innovation behind it and an unrivalled understanding of geography teaching. The GA was formed by five geographers in 1893 to share ideas and learn from each other. Today, the GA’s purpose is the same and it remains an independent association. Click for more.

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)
The Royal Geographical Society was established in 1830 and became one of the great nineteenth century knowledge gathering societies – coinciding of course with an age of discovery and imperial expansion. The GA (see above) grew out of the RGS and for much of the twentieth century the RGS expressed only limited interest in school education. Interest in higher education came with its merger with the Institute of British Geography in 1995. In the twenty-first century the RGS-IBG has grown its school oriented activities significantly.
