'The Geological Society of London
was founded in 1807. It is the UK national society for geoscience, and the oldest geological society in the world ... As well as boasting one of the most important geological libraries in the world, the Geological Society is a global leader in Earth science publishing, and is renowned for its cutting edge science meetings. It is a vital forum in which Earth scientists from a broad spectrum of disciplines and environments can exchange ideas, and is an important communicator of geoscience to government, media, those in education and the broader public.
'The Friends of The Geological Society
scheme is open to all amateur, non-professional geologists. It was launched following the Shell London Lecture series which stimulated many people to ask how they could support the Society and find out more about the exciting work being done by geologists to address the intellectual and practical challenges of the twenty-first century. The scheme is for those who do not hold a formal qualification in Geology or a related subject, and do not otherwise qualify for Fellowship (this includes those who have been Fellows in the past).'
