THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHICAL UNION REGIONAL CONFERENCE, QUEBEC CITY, AUGUST 2018
On behalf of the Canadian Association of Geographers and the Université Laval, North America’s oldest French-language university, we are pleased to invite you to Quebec City to participate in the 2018 International Geographical Union Regional Conference to be held in Canada from August 6 to 10, 2018.
The conference theme, Appreciating Difference, or Apprécier la différence, is a Quebec expression that invites participants to consider the world as a blank canvas that we must first decide how to depict before putting down images and words. Surely, the choice of those images and words is a matter of appreciation. To appreciate is not only a question of what we find significant and of value, it is also an awareness of differences and the ability to recognize them as meaningful to a more inclusive interpretation of the diverse world in which we live. Conference topics, as well as IGU commissions and CAG study groups, will reflect on this thought-provoking theme. In addition, a wide variety of field excursions combining human and physical geography will provide participants with the opportunity to apprécier la difference that makes Quebec, a UNESCO World Heritage City, a place of exceptional geographic interest.
The organising committee is making all the necessary efforts to offer you a stimulating, convivial, and environmentally friendly conference. Don’t miss this unique occasion to get to know the world’s geographers. Bienvenue au Canada in 2018!
