Established in 1884, the Royal Scottish Geographic Society is Scotland’s educational charity and learned society that provides intelligent and insightful commentary on world issues from a geographical perspective. It promotes the study and wider awareness of geography and its contribution to the understanding of environmental, cultural and social issues in Scotland and internationally.

The RSGS Honorary Fellowship is a prestigious award conferred for services to the RSGS and/or contributions to society and sustainability through the wider discipline of geography. The first award was presented in 1888 and recent awardees include Jojo Mehta, Mark Carney, Greta Thunberg, Laurent Fabius, Christiana Figueres and Manuel Pulgar Vidal. Prof Sindico is the first award recipient with a legal background from the University of Strathclyde.
