Supported by both corporate funding and pro bono hours from the ERM Foundation, ERM has established a successful three-year corporate partnership with the Royal Geographic Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) (RGS – IBG), the world’s leading organization in the field of geography. ERM supports the RGS to advance the professional development of geographers.

As part of this partnership, ERM has been providing volunteer support and technical expertise, focusing on two programs of work. The first provides secondary geography teachers with additional knowledge, skills and confidence to plan and deliver high-quality environmental fieldwork. The second is to support RGS with a regional program of professional development activities and networking events for geography professionals.
