35th International Geographical Congress @ Dublin, Ireland
Aug 24 @ 5:26 am – Aug 30 @ 6:26 am
35th International Geographical Congress @ Dublin, Ireland

The 35th International Geographical Congress (IGC), to be held in Dublin, Ireland in August 2024, will provide an opportunity to share the best of global geographic research, discuss common challenges and opportunities and connect with colleagues from across the world.

The event is being organised by the International Geographical Union and the Geographical Society of Ireland.

The IGC 2024 will continue the tradition of previous congresses in recognising that our world faces many common natural and societal challenges that can only be dealt with through global action, understanding and sharing. In this respect, geography as a discipline, its skills, attributes and the geographic mindset has much to offer other disciplines, policymakers, officials, politicians and communities.

The theme of the congress is ‘Celebrating a World of Difference,’ and we are strongly focused through our academic and fieldwork program on:

  • supporting intercultural awareness and understanding;
  • promoting intellectual diversity as a strength;
  • bringing geographic research and thinking beyond the congress walls; and
  • grappling with the complex interconnections between people, place and the natural world.
