This year Geography at NUI Galway will be hosting the 7th EUGEO Congress in conjunction with the 51st Conference of Irish Geographers, in Galway City in the west of Ireland. The conference will take place over four days (May 15th – 18th 2019) and the theme for the 2019 conference is Re-Imagining Europe's Future Society and Landscapes. The theme focuses on the centrality of the concepts of society and landscape within the Discipline of Geography and the importance of the relationship that exists between the physical and cultural landscape.
There will be over 500 delegates attending the conference representing an astonishing 37 countries. This conference will offer participants the opportunity to reflect on and re-imagine futures within the geographical boundary of Europe. The overarching theme is reflected throughout the conference programme and themed fieldtrips (programme available here). The aim of this broad and inclusive theme was to attract a wide variety of geographers with a range of physical, social, cultural, political and environmental research interests. The conference promises to be a very enjoyable event in a vibrant city and includes an exciting programme of social events (available here).
