Climate Change Research Group

Climate Change Research Group - Friday 9 February

The Royal Geographical Society (RGS-IBG) conference will take place in London from Tuesday 27 August to Friday 30 August 2024 at the Royal Geographical Society in London. This year, it will be chaired by Professor Stephen Legg (Nottingham University, UK), with the Chair's theme being Mapping.

As always, the RGS-IBG Climate Change Research Group (CCRG) is keen to sponsor sessions, presentations and activities at the conference. If you are planning to convene a session at RGS-IBG 2024, please do submit an application for sponsorship. We are keen to have as many sponsored sessions as we can, in order to ensure they receive due prominence in what is likely to be a busy and exciting conference.

The form includes a template to include the following information. If all rows are filled, please feel free to add additional rows. There is no limit to the number of applications for sponsorship, but the total number of sponsored sessions is expected to be twelve.
