Help us shape the future of Geographical

ThuleEver since Geographical launched back in 1935, we’ve had one simple remit that stands above all others – to provide our readers with a clear, unbiased view on the world. Whether through pictorial essays of far-flung cultures, in-depth analyses of global issues, or practical guides to exploring the planet, Geographical has always endeavoured to keep you informed, educated and, we hope, entertained.

One of the ways we can continue to achieve this goal is by having a firm understanding of who our readers are and how they feel about what we do. To that end, Geographical needs your help. The 2016 Geographical Reader Survey is our way of gaining a fuller understanding of what you think about all aspects of the content we produce – be it magazine, website, even our social media output.


By way of thanks, we’ve partnered with outdoor storage specialists Thule to offer three of our survey participants with a choice of superb Thule backpacks worth upwards of £100. Thule has been creating superb outdoor bags and carriers since 1942. Whatever your passion, whatever your pursuit. Wherever you’re going, whatever you’re bringing. With Thule, you’re free to live your active life to the full.

On completion of the survey you can enter our prize draw to win one of:

• the Thule EnRoute Blur 2, a 24-litre daypack designed with smart storage options to quickly access gear and SafeEdge laptop protection

triumph small

• the Thule EnRoute Triumph 2, a 21-litre pack with SafeEdge laptop protection and compartments for essential daily gear

stir small

Clicking on the link below will take you to our survey. There are six sections that should take no longer than ten minutes to fully complete and will provide us with the clearest snapshot of who a Geographical reader is today, helping us to shape the magazine and its content in a way that best serves you.
