The Royal Geographical Society

The Royal Geographical Society (RGS) is the UK’s learned society and professional body for geography, supporting geography and geographers across the world. Building on Pat Noxolo’s call for openness towards an emergent Black British Geography, the RGS has been open to a close and active partnership both during and after the fellowship.  In line with its commitments to “[t]hink… critically about the Society’s history and how [they] represent it within [their] building” (see RGS website), the RGS will open its doors to two ‘takeover’ events (an installation and a film) designed to recontextualise the RGS’s archives and the histories of its building, provoking online debate about Geography’s pasts and its futures.


The Geographical Association

The Geographical Association (GA) is the leading subject association for teachers of geography. The GA supports geography education by providing a specialist community of practice for teachers to share ideas with one another. The GA will co-produce and pilot CARICUK’s learning pack and arts participation with key stage 3 students.

Muna Abdi: MA Education Consultancy

MA Education Consultancy CIC works with a range of clients across all sectors and of all sizes, to support them in developing equitable and inclusive structures and practices.  Dr Muna Abdi, an anti-racist educational consultant, will advise on the learning pack and evaluate CARICUK as an anti-racist project. She will also ensure that young people with more informal education providers, particularly African-Caribbean supplementary schools, also participate.

University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham is the original ‘redbrick’ University, part of the prestigious Russell Group; its thriving student population enjoys a wide range of courses, and exceptional campus and research facilities.  CARICUK aims also to strengthen UoB’s efforts to fulfil the commitments in its Race Equality Charter (REC) Action Plan particularly in relation to aim 8 (“enhance campus experience for BAME students”), which has deep implications for all its other aims around representation and equality.
