The Paris 2022 UGI Centennial CongressThe International Geographic Union will reach its 100th anniversary in 2022. To celebrate this creation, the evolution of the discipline over the last century, and its contemporary and future significance, the French Committee of Geography (CNFG) is organizing an extraordinary conference, gathering geographers from all the continents. The Paris 2022 UGI Centennial Congress will take place between July 18 and July 22 2022.

Paris will host this centennial congress in its most prestigious university, la Sorbonne, offering thereby an exceptional event and plenty of opportunities for geographers from around the globe. Keynote addresses, scientific presentations as well as various social meetings organised during the Congress will flesh out these high-rank debates.

Four members of Géographie-cités will co-chair two sessions within the theme: “The time of geographers”:

“Spaces and Places of the Imaginations of the Future”, co-chaired by Beatrice von Hirschhausen and Ségolène Debarre

“The Spatial Ephemera”, co-chaired by Fernandez Agueda Beatriz and Marie-Vic Ozouf-Marignier.
