Annual Conference

University of Surrey, Guildford - Thursday 20 - Saturday 22 April 2017

From 20-22 April we welcomed more than 750 delegates from all over the world to take part in a range of lectures, workshops, field visits and social events and find out about the latest ideas, resources and support in primary and secondary geography.

Find out which publishers, schools and individuals won GA Awards at the 2017 event.

We would like to ensure that Conference is as successful as possible for all delegates. If you attended Conference please take a few minutes to leave feedback.

In order to gain a Pathway Certificate of Attendance you will need to have attended a minimum of four sessions from a pathway. Please take a few minutes to provide feedback about the pathway you attended. A certificate will be issued where an email address is provided.
