Message From The President

We are so proud of you, Cynthia Burek

On behalf of all members of the BFWG, I would like to congratulate Cynthia Burek who has recently been appointed to the UNESCO International Geoscience Committee Science Board. This appointment is for four years. Cynthia will advise them on Geoheritage and Geoconservation issues and assess projects put forward to them for funding.

Cynthia Burek has also been awarded an honorary membership of the Quaternary Research Association on the 7th Jan 2021 at their AGM. Cynthia says it was completely out of the blue and it was awarded for her contribution to both Quaternary research and to her sustained contribution to Geoconservation.

In 2005 Cynthia Burek was appointed as the First Professor of Geoconservation in the world.

BFWG Sunday Talks

4.30pm on the last Sunday of the month (or thereabouts)

This series of talks has been put together to bring the collegiality of the BFWG and the opportunity to hear and talk to speakers from a range of disciplines and roles, some ‘home grown’ and some new.

We really started this programme before Christmas with Professor Toby Wilkinson on Egyptian excavation and a number of the Local Associations have also been arranging their own events.
