With the world’s longest coastline and the second largest landmass of any country, Canada has much to explore.
Building on both their individual legacies and a shared history of excellence in creating content and inspiring action, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and the National Geographic Society realize that there has never been a more critical time to collaborate. No one knows Canada, its people and its places, its lakes and rivers, its Arctic, its vast agricultural lands, like The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, publishers of Canadian Geographic. And no other global brand has the power and reach to make us care about our planet in as visceral a way as the National Geographic Society. As such, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and the National Geographic Society are excited to announce a new partnership initiative: the Trebek Council. Named in recognition of the late RCGS Honorary President and Jeopardy! host’s longstanding philanthropic support of geographic education at both The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and the National Geographic Society, this joint program will provide funding to empower the next generation of planetary stewards. Grants provided by the Council, will support a diverse new generation of scientists, explorers, storytellers and educators — those doing innovative work that reveals, examines and celebrates the natural world.
