European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO)

Legal seat:

EUROGEO promotes the European dimension in geographical education as a contribution towards the development of European citizenship. By doing so, EUROGEO encourages the development of a greater European awareness through the medium of geography and increases mutual knowledge and understanding of Europe.

The principal aims of EUROGEO are to advance the status of geography by:

  • organising events and activities for members
  • producing publications for members
  • supporting geographers in their jobs and careers
  • identifying and promoting good practise
  • lobbying at European and national level
  • giving advice on geography
  • making recommendations to decision makers

EUROGEO is a non-profit scientific and educational society, legally based under Belgian law. It was founded in 1979. For 30 years EUROGEO has contributed to the advancement of geography in Europe. EUROGEO has members from more than 25 countries who share interests in the theory, methods, and practice of geography.

EUROGEO, in affiliation with other organisations, has produced a large number of publications and has organised geography conferences, meetings and workshops on a regular basis. Representatives of professional educational associations have been actively involved in EUROGEO.

EUROGEO also supports those seeking to establish or organise national geography associations and those that promote geography as an academic discipline and geographers in the workplace.

It is clear that spatial skills and geographical information on the Web are increasingly important. The roles that geography and geographers play are being challenged by these new geo-opportunities. Those involved with the EUROGEO association are seeking to monitor and support these developments.
