2018 IGU Regional Conference - CAG Annual Meeting - NCGE Annual Conference

On behalf of the International Geographical Union (IGU), the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) and the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG), the organizing committee would like to thank you for attending the 2018 IGU Conference in Quebec city this past summer. The event was a big success thanks to your presence. There were fifteen plenary talks on human, physical and education geography, over 1200 oral presentations, one hundred posters and ten field excursions in the Quebec City area. Important contributions from partners such as Google Earth Outreach, National Geographic, Jakarto Cartography 3D, K2 Geospatial, as well as many other collaborating partners and 33 exhibitors helped make this event the largest geographic gathering in the history of Canada.

We are also pleased to announce the creation of the IGU 2020 grant, which aims to support student mobility in geography. Thanks to the donation of many IGU2018 participants, this $ 3000 scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolled in one of Université Laval's geography programs in order to attend the IGU 2020 conference to be held in Istanbul. Thank you for your generous contributions!

Our event pictures are finally available and we have many! You are invited to see them here.
