Here at the University of Plymouth we recognise the importance of enthusing the next generation of scientists, whether it is through visits to local schools, in house events, or wider promotion of the subject via national societies.

The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Plymouth welcome invitations to participate in outreach events such as talks, short workshops or careers fairs. These can either be through University staff visits or by visits to the University of Plymouth. We do not charge for speakers but would require you to cover reasonable travel and subsistence costs for staff visits. If you would like to request a visit, please complete the form.

A level Geohazards Conference 2019

Professor Iain Stewart’s keynote talk on communicating geohazards and disaster risk from the 2019 A level Geohazards conference. Iain covers topics as diverse as geohazard occurrence (volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, tsunamis), risk management and communication, and the effects of a range of hazards drawing upon a number of case studies such as Mount Merapi volcanic eruption and the Boxing Day tsunami to look at the intersection between physical sciences and human responses.
