GEMS is a UQ Union Affiliated society that aims to connect students who study or have an interest in Geography or Environmental Management.

GEMS organises numerous social events throughout the year that allow students to network with future employees, colleagues and friends. This includes events such as the annual SECS Ball, a black tie event in coordination with SUSS and CESA, multiple Trivia nights throughout the year and the ‘cannot be missed’ Pub Crawls which guarantee a good time and the opportunity to socialise with numerous other UQ societies!

As well as this we constantly engage with professionals in the fields of Environmental Management and Geography, to ensure that our members get as much exposure to professionals in the field as they can. This is done throughout the year through panel forum talks and industry engagement nights.
