The IGC is the quadrennial meeting of the International Geographical Union (IGU). Besides the traditional meetings of the IGC Commissions the 32nd International Geographical Congress in Cologne focuses scientific attention on the core themes of humanity.
Geographers bring the wide-ranging perspectives and methodology of their subject to bear on four major thematic complexes and contribute to the solution of urgent scientific and socio-political issues – bringing research down to earth:
Global Change and Globalisation
Society and Environment
Risks and Conflicts
Urbanisation and Demographic Change
