Dear Colleagues,

The 2023 EUROGEO Annual Meeting and Conference will be organised in April 2023 in Kraków, Poland. We would like to invite you to submit your abstracts for papers, workshops, posters or organised sessions on any aspects of geography or interdisciplinary fields of work/research, for the EUROGEO 2023 Conference: “FUTURE-READY GEOGRAPHY”.

Today’s world is in a state of permanent and radical change which is affecting society, science and the economy in equal measures. The concurrent processes of globalisation, digitisation, and integration shape and constantly modify the development factors and generate multidirectional social changes.

Growing global issues related to climate change, food security, depletion of conventional energy sources, conflicts and wars, refugee crisis and pandemic open up new issues for geographic investigations as well as reinforce the need to examine old research topics covering a variety of sub-disciplines. That is why the term “future-ready” becomes nowadays more frequently used in discourses on geographic research.

In particular, geographic education at schools should be a subject for discussion and reflection as this is where our learners are primed to understand the world around them.

For this reason the main goal of this conference is to foster a future-oriented exchange and discussion among scientists representing all sub-disciplines of geography as well as geography teachers and heads of faculties on how geography as science and school subject can get ready for the “future.”

 Conference Strands:

  • What theoretical concepts and paradigms will dominate geographic research and geographical education research in the future?
  • What are the crucial problems and challenges for geography as a discipline and school subject in the nearest future?
  • What is and will be the role of geography in preparing the society for the future? Which issues will become key in geography as future-oriented science?
  • In what way geography as science and school subject should respond to environmental, socio-economic, and political issues of global, regional and local impact in order to effectively utilise its potential of applied science?
  • Which methods, techniques and tools of data collection and analysis efficiently support geographers in future-oriented research and forecasting environmental and social changes?
  • How to reinforce the position of geography as science and school subject nowadays and in the future?
