Geology does… lots. Everywhere.

It plays a part in Scotland’s culture, landscape, tourism, biodiversity, history, sense of place, weather & climate, resources, energy mix, infrastructure, food & drink, built heritage, learning, carbon capture…

The ‘Geology does’ campaign celebrates the contribution geology makes to Scotland. It’s the country’s bedrock; it tells Scotland’s story; it resources our future.

Get involved

The Geology does campaign is being run by the Scottish Geology Trust to promote its aim of inspiring people everywhere to understand, love and care for Scotland’s geological heritage. Please support the Scottish Geology Trust – donate or become a member.

Involvement of diverse partners is valued! We are keen to work with organisations and individuals. Current supporters include NatureScot, British Geological Survey, Historic Environment Scotland, GeoBus, local Geological Societies and Scotland’s Landscape Alliance.

We anticipate wider participation to promote the themes of the campaign, to explore the relevance of geology, and to take it beyond its initial burst of activity.

Resources are freely available for appropriate reuse.
