EUROGEO is a European, non-governmental, non-profit organisation.
It is the European scientific and educational society which was founded in 1979 which networks geographers from all walks of life and organisations who are interested in the theory methods and practice of Geography.
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 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.
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.
