EGEA is the European geography association which forms a network around Europe and supports young geographers in discovering their potential as young scientists. The association offers opportunities for personal development through: facilitating the exploration of European countries, exposing its members to different cultures, and providing the chance to make new friends, as well as to establish a European network.
EGEA organizes numerous geography-related activities throughout the year such as congresses, exchanges, seminars, training events, expeditions, and excursions, which all offer complementary and alternative learning opportunities to the more traditional “formal” geographic education we are used to. EGEA’s activities vary in scientific and recreational content, and they are founded in the spirit of respecting the principles of equality, diversity and non-discrimination.
Additionally, EGEA actively contributes towards strengthening geography’s position in society by promoting the discipline through its organisational network and strategic partnerships.
