18 IGU Regional Conference

The Canadian Association of Geographers and the University Laval, North America’s oldest French-language university, organized the 2018 International Geographical Union Regional Conference - Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) Annual Meeting - National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) Annual Conference in Canada from August 6 to 10, 2018.

The conference theme, Appreciating Difference, or Apprécier la différence, is a Quebec expression that invited 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.
