International geography and the case for civic engagement, geospatial style
from Directions Magazine
Earlier this month, over 1,500 geographers from dozens of different countries gathered in Québec City, Canada, for a conference of the International Geographical Union. The IGU was first established in Belgium in 1922, at a postwar time in the world when there was a keen appreciation for sound geographical understanding. The IGU holds a large congress every four years: in 2016, it was in Beijing, and in 2020, it will be in Istanbul.
