Open Day | 12 October 2019 | BGS Keyworth

Open day highlights

Thank you to everyone who visited us on our open day on Saturday 12 October 2019, we hope you enjoyed exploring the fascinating world of the geosciences.

The event was held as part of Earth Science Week (12–20 October) with support from leading Universities, partners and scientists.

Geoscience is critical to our transition towards a more sustainable future. We hope the day helped to showcase how important it is that we understand how geology affects our daily lives and the world around us. It is essential we encourage more young people to consider a career in geoscience.

Thank you to all of our staff, partners and visitors for helping to make the day a success.
