 2018 is the pilot year for this nationwide initiative which seeks to introduce as many members of the public to geoscience as possible, mainly through outdoor activities such as urban, rural or coastal fieldwork. If you visit the Earth Science Education Forum (ESEF) website, you can see that similar initiatives elsewhere have been very successful. For example: On a single day in May 2015 nearly 10,000 members of the public experienced 50+ geological field trips led by 500+ geoscientists across Spain Canadian regions devised geoscience posters in collaboration with schools across the country On Geoheritage Day in Ottawa, small groups of geoscientists stationed at sites of geoscientific interest successfully engaged the public across the city. [See: http://www.bgs.ac.uk/esef/mobGeosci.htm ]  At the LGS Council Meeting on 16/01/2018, it was decided that during the nine-day 'week' (GeoWeek), Liverpool Geological Society would aim to offer an urban field visit on Saturday 12th May 2018.  This urban field visit will be based on the LGS leaflet ‘Rock Around William Brown Street’. If you would like to be involved in the planning for this event &/or could offer a couple of hours on 12th May to share your enthusiasm and help members of the public to find out more about the building stones in William Brown Street – and the stories told by the rocks, fossils and minerals they can see there, please contact Maggie Williams via williams.maggiee@gmail.com
