RSSB owns properties worldwide often called "Science of the Soul Study Centres", where meetings are held and members can do voluntary service. The centres are not used for social events or ceremonies such as weddings or funerals, nor for fundraising activities. They are constructed and maintained primarily by volunteers who donate their time and resources.
Science of the Soul Study Centres are designed to be harmonious with local architectural styles and environmental conditions. Efforts are made to enhance the natural surroundings by planting trees and creating green areas. Concern for the environment is reflected in such activities as water management, stream and wetland preservation and restoration, organic farming, and historical buildings restoration. Food grown at some centres is donated to local food banks.
