Scottish Geology Festival 2020 – Call for Events

The Scottish Geology Trust will be hosting the Scottish Geology Festival this year to encourage activity, events and engagement in support of Scotland’s geology. The festival will run from 12th September – 31st October, 2020.

The Trust invites organisations, enthusiasts, and societies to create and list their relevant events and activities during this timeframe under the Festival for advertising and promotional support. Events should be geared for those interested in geology and those who may wish to learn more about Scotland’s geology. Events and activities will not be limited to a ‘strictly Scottish geology’ theme and may take form in supporting areas, such as sustainability and Scotland’s landscapes.

The festival will offer a range of events and activities for anyone interested in geology; there will be fantastic opportunities for all to get involved, including families, communities and tourists visiting the area.

The Trust now invites organisations, societies, Geoparks and enthusiasts to submit their events/activities for the festival. Please consider hosting both visitor-attended events (following the Scottish Government’s regulations on events/activities and social distancing) and digital events which can be accessed online. The deadline to submit visitor-attended events is 20th August and 31st August for virtual events.

Examples of the potential events and activities are:

  • Virtual tours and field-trips
  • Visitor-attended tours and field-trips
  • Visitor-attended events for adults and children who are interested in geology
  • Classroom activities/activity sheets
  • Feel free to get creative in what type of event/activity you would like to offer

The festival will offer an inclusive and accessible approach to geology. There is no fee to list events/activities under the festival. All events will be listed on the Trust’s events webpage and advertised on The List.

Don’t miss out on this great marketing and advertising opportunity to promote your organisation, business, and Scottish geology!
