The chair's theme for the 2019 Annual Conference is Geographies of trouble / geographies of hope. We have been delighted to receive a range of sessions and papers which engage directly with this theme, as well as others focusing on all areas of geography.
The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is the learned society and professional body for geography.
Geography, by its very nature, looks outwards and acts inclusively. This is also true of the Society, as an independent, self-financing learned society and professional body. We are absolutely committed to the importance of international collaboration in research, scholarship, teaching and field science and the value of sharing ideas, understanding and perspectives widely.
The annual conference is international in nature and outlook. Each year we welcome hundreds of colleagues from around the world, with a third of attendees coming from outside the UK. We are committed to continuing this open and outward-facing approach, and particularly welcome contributions by international delegates to the conference programme.
