The current academic year is being celebrated as the Year of Fieldwork by founding partners Field Studies Council, the GA, Esri UK, Ordnance Survey and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
The initiative launched in Scotland at FSC Millport and has since gathered a lot of support from organisations there.
Supporters of the Year of Fieldwork simply sign up to say they agree with the principals and help to promote fieldwork further and the list includes: Education Scotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, John Muir Trust, Marine Alliance Science Technology Scotland (MASTS), Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET), Royal Scottish Geographical Society, Scottish Association of Geography Teachers, Scottish Association for Marine Science, Scottish Environment Link, Scottish Outdoor Education Centres and Scottish Natural Heritage.
FSC Scotland are delighted that so many Scottish organisations are backing the Year of Fieldwork and that there is such a positive opinion about the benefits of fieldwork in Scotland.
