    Thought-provoking discussions from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)

    We invite leading thinkers to give their perspective on some of the key challenges we face as a society in the 21st Century. From adapting to a rapidly growing population and changing climate, to keeping pace with an increasingly globalised world and the challenges and opportunites to sustainability this brings. 

    Discussions are held from 7.00- 8.30pm at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in South Kensington and are open to everyone.  For more information please see Upcoming Events.

    All the events are filmed and free to watch online along with supplementary interviews, 60 seconds guides, focus articles, news and teaching resources.
