Astronomy and geophysics are fields of scientific endeavour that are truly inspirational and engaging for our fellow citizens, giving the Royal Astronomical Society has an excellent platform to embed understanding and appreciation of science in wider society. The public fascination with our sciences also provides opportunities to increase our reach in disadvantaged and underserved communities, and to share the many, exciting discoveries with the public upon whose funding we rely.

The long-established RAS Education and Outreach (E&O) programs run by our Staff and Fellows, and overseen by the E&O Committee was augmented by the very successful, RAS200 “Sky and Earth” programme to celebrate our 200th anniversary year. Looking forward to our next century, the RAS is developing a Strategic Plan. As part of our activities, the E&O Working Group is hosting a SDM to discuss and gain insight from current activities, to explore how to to optimize our programs across in-person, online and social media platforms, and to encourage and empower our Fellows – young and old alike – to get involved with public astronomy and geophysics activities. The meeting will include invited speakers discussing a range of E&O experiences, training, tracking impact, and invites contributed talks to learn from your experiences. We invite all those interested in being involved in RAS E&O, with/without experience, to join us.
