Visions and Missions
[ Long Term Cooperation with HKSAR Government Agencies ]
GSHK is a non-profit making organisation that aims to enhance geological interests and studies in Hong Kong. We believe that geological knowledge is indispensable for achieving a sustainable community, and therefore ought to be widely promoted to the general public.
The Geological Society of Hong Kong (GSHK) was established by a group of local geologists in 1982 with an aim to advance geological sciences in Hong Kong and to provide a platformfor both professionals and amateursto meet. Since then, GSHK holdsregularly geological conferences and seminars, and organises local and overseas field trips for both members and non-members to explore the geological world. At present, the society maintains a steady membership of about 250, including professional geologists from the public and private sectors, academia, as well as teachers, students and amateurs.
