GeoWeek | 9–17 May 2020

GeoWeek is a new initiative, launched in 2018, that aims to promote 'active geoscience' via a 'week' of field trip activities taking place across the UK and Northern Ireland between 9–17 May 2020.

GeoWeek seeks to introduce as many members of the public to geoscience as possible, mainly through outdoor activities such as urban, rural or coastal field trips.

Find a GeoWeek event

Members of the public interested in learning more about their local geology can find local events by searching the 2019 GeoWeek Event Map.

Most of the events are free, but some organisers may charge a fee. Please contact the event organiser directly for booking information.
