EUGEO 2014 General Assembly and Seminar on Wednesday August 18, 6-8 pm (At IGU Regional Conference, Kraków, Poland)
The 2015 EUGEO General Assembly meeting will be held during the IGU Regional Conference in Kraków, Poland. Venue is the Jagiellonian University. The assembly will take place in the early evening of Wednesday August 20th from 18.00 till about 18.30. We hope that many representatives of EUGEO member societies will attend.
The meeting continues with the third seminar on the State of Geography and Geographical Societies in Europe. This time, we want to discuss the final results of the participation of EUGEO in the Teaching Geography with Remote Sensing project commissioned by the European Space Agency and the IGU-EUGEO-EUROGEO project on a new international strategy for geography teaching, including work on a new Charter for Geography Education and the Interactive Planning 4 the Future project, focussing on the desirability of introducing the future development of local/regional environments as a major element of geography lessons. We are looking for participation of member societies in existing projects and for possible new project proposals by EUGEO for European subsidies.
