The International Geography Olympiads are held under the auspices of the International Geographical Union (IGU), through the IGU Olympiad Task Force. From July 31st to August 6th, the 15th International Geography Olympiad will be held in Quebec City on the campus of the Université Laval and in the surrounding region. With some 50 different countries expected to participate, iGeo 2018 will be an exciting opportunity to appreciate the diverse peoples and landscapes that make up our world. The Olympiad will be highlighted by multiple cultural events, a poster presentation session, and a faunal concert emphasising sustainable development. The iGeo gold medal ceremony will take place at the Quebec City Conference Centre during the opening ceremonies of the IGU-CAG-NCGE Congress.
For more information on the International Geography Olympiad please go to: GeoOlympiads 2018.
The Canadian Association of Geographers and the Université Laval are pleased to invite you to Quebec City to participate in the 2018 International Geographical Union (IGU) Regional Conference – Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) Annual Meeting – National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) Annual Conference, to be held in Canada from August 6 to 10, 2018.
The conference theme is “Appreciating Difference”. To appreciate the difference is not only a question of what we find significant and of value, it is also an awareness of differences and the ability to recognize them as meaningful to a more inclusive interpretation of the diverse world in which we live. Conference topics, as well as IGU commissions, CAG study groups and NCGE Sections will reflect on this thought-provoking theme.
