The 34th International Geographical Congress (IGC) will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 17-21, 2020. The theme is Geography: Bridging the Continents which Geography also has meaning of evaluation, interpretation, awareness and analysis. The fact that Istanbul is located at the junction of the continents constitutes the most important point of this great meaning. Parallel to the quadrennial meeting of the IGU commissions and the task forces, six key topics, derived from the conference theme, have been established, Globalization vs Localization, Climate Change, Migration and Conflicts, Earth and Disasters, Eurasia and Middle East Studies, Anthropocene.
We look forward to welcoming you to Istanbul in between August 17-21, 2020
