When we’re going in to that far flung village the Defender will attract that good will, start those conversations that will then lead on to all sorts of other adventures.

ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY (WITH IBG)

Land Rover supports fieldwork and expedition activities, from providing vehicles and expertise, to funding outreach and training, and today providing the Land Rover Bursary.

For more than 25 years Land Rover has been supporting the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers which is a world centre for geography, supporting research, education, expeditions and fieldwork, and promoting public engagement and informed enjoyment of our world. Land Rover supports fieldwork and expedition activities, from providing vehicles and expertise, to funding outreach and training, and today providing the Land Rover Bursary.

Land Rover and institute of British Geographers

Land Rover’s partnership supports Geography Outdoors, which is the centre supporting field research, exploration and outdoor learning. Land Rover provides financial support and the loan of a vehicle for the Society to visit field centres, universities and secondary schools. This supports the Society’s work to put well planned, safely run, quality fieldwork that benefits students’ learning and personal development at the centre of geographical education. Land Rover funding helps run the annual "Explore" weekend and subsidises delegates to attend Land Rover Off-Road Driver Safety courses.


Together the two organisations offer an annual Land Rover Bursary. The grant provides the loan of a Land Rover 110 Defender vehicle and a bursary of £30,000 to fund a team of people to support a geographical journey. The aim of the journey is to challenge and inspire the team’s geographical understanding of a particular environment, where the use of a 110 Defender is essential to the trip. 

In working with the Society, Land Rover continues to provide four-wheel drive leadership, encouraging the pursuit of knowledge and understanding of environments and societies in a safe and responsible way.

 

I think the link between the Royal Geographical Society and Land Rover is absolutely crucial, we've had tremendous backing with Land Rover with their engineers. Everyone is on board.

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
