The New Zealand Geographical Society is a professional body serving geographers in schools and universities, government and the private sector. Founded in 1944, the society’s aim is to promote and stimulate the study of Geography within New Zealand.
Its publications are read by geographers and people in allied disciplines in New Zealand and abroad. It provides resource materials for schools, and makes submissions to local, national and international agencies on matters of concern to geographers in New Zealand. Its conferences help keep teachers and researchers abreast with current developments in our subject.
Its membership supports the publication of New Zealand Geographer, a peer reviewed international journal for disseminating geographical knowledge relevant to New Zealand, Australia and the Asia-Pacific region and promotion of geographical knowledge to the wider educational community.
The holding of regular meetings in conjunction with the affiliated New Zealand Board of Geography Teachers (NZBoGT) facilitates the transmission of ideas and knowledge between geographers in the schools and universities.
A close relationship is maintained with the Institute of Australian Geographers. Three joint conferences have been held: in Auckland in 1992, in Hobart, Tasmania in early 1997, and in Dunedin, in 2001. The next joint meeting will be held as part of the IGU Regional Conference in Brisbane, Australia (July-August, 2006).
NZ Geographical Society is a member of the International Geographical Union via its membership of The Royal Society of New Zealand.
