The Open University's Centre for Geographical and Environmental Research

Welcome to OpenSpace

The OpenSpace Research Centre promotes research on geographical and environmental concerns. Our research is conceptually and empirically innovative, and designed to engage with diverse publics. The Centre encourages a vibrant research environment, drawing on research expertise both within and beyond The Open University and academia.

The Centre’s ongoing seminar series takes place on the main Milton Keynes campus and occasionally at our OU regional office in Camden, London. Visit the Events page for the current schedule.

The research of our members and related activity is highlighted on our News page. Please explore the site and discover the myriad of ways our membership engages in geographical and environmental research. You can listen to podcasts of past research seminars, guest lectures, and interviews, read our latest news, and follow us on twitter and facebook for realtime accounts of the activities and interests of our members.
