Successful launch of Chartered Geography scheme

Royal Geographical Society awards to UCL staff

At the Royal Geographical Society (with the IBG) Medals and Awards Celebration on 1st June, Professor Peter Wood, of UCL Geography, with Professor Ken Gregory, formerly of the University of Southampton, Warden of Goldsmiths College and a UCL Geography graduate, were awarded Honorary Fellowships. This was in recognition of their role in overseeing the successful RGS Chartered Geographer (CGeog) scheme since it was launched in 2002.

CGeog is the only internationally recognised professional accreditation for those who use geographical knowledge, understanding and skills in the workplace. There are now over 500 Chartered Geographers, including, among others, GI Scientists, conservationists, planners, surveyors, environmental and economic consultants, teachers, academics, civil servants and military personnel. More than 10% of CGeogs are from outside the UK.

At the same ceremony, the RGS’s top award, the Founders Medal, was presented to Professor Mike Batty, of UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, “for the development and promotion of the geographical science of cities”.
