The Scottish Centre for Geopoetics is a membership organisation which relies on members’ subscriptions to fund its activities which are carried out by volunteers. Its purpose is to raise awareness of geopoetics as a crucial way to approach and respond creatively to the natural world of which we are part.

Its network of individuals includes visual artists, writers, musicians, ornithologists, geologists, botanists, teachers and lecturers who each share a common interest in developing an understanding of geopoetics and applying it creatively in their lives. The Centre organises talks, discussions, events and field walks to extend members’ knowledge and experience of geopoetics. As the main English language geopoetics centre, it has members in USA, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Germany, Poland, Ireland, Wales and England as well as throughout Scotland.
