Young Geographer of the Year Competition 2023

The Young Geographer of the Year is the Society’s annual competition which recognises the outstanding work of the next generation of geographers. With its age ranges spanning the primary years to A Level, the competition encourages thoughtful and creative answers to the competition’s theme which is set each year.

This year the Society invites young people to create an A3 poster showing their own blueprint for the future. The clips below will help them research the areas suggested by the Society – food production and supply, energy and sustainability, water security, resources, population growth, economic crisis, transport, travel, urbanisation, risk management, trade, environmental management and biodiversity. They can build upon this foundation to come up with innovative ideas for their posters.
Good luck to all of the Young Geographers out there – enjoy these clips and the competition.

The Young Geographer competition has been running for over 20 years and in 2020 over 10,000 young people took part.
