As Chair of GCYFRG, I would like to encourage you to join our vibrant and supportive community.   We have a mailing list that will keep you connected to the wider research community interested in the geographies of children, youth and families.

We are a forum for new directions in research on the geographies of children, youth and families. We support postgraduates and early-career academics, as well as collaborate with practitioners and other research groups.
