IGU Commissions Excellence Award 2015 awarded to Commission on Geographical Education
The IGU Executive Committee has awarded the IGU Commissions Excellence Award to the Commission on Geographical Education. The Commission on Geographical Education, jointly chaired by Professor Joop van der Schee (University of Amsterdam) and John Lidstone (Queensland University of Technology) has been consistently very active and highly productive. The Commission is exceptionally successful in disseminating geographical knowledge and skills to a broad audience beyond the academic community and in educating future generations of geographers. The signing of the new Declaration on research in Geographical Education and the development of a new Charter on Geography Education in collaboration with EUGEO and EUROGEO are major outcomes of the Commission's work in 2015.
This is the third year of the IGU Commission Excellence Award, previous winners were the Commissions on Gender (2013) and Political Geography (2014). The award includes a prize of US$2500 towards Commission activities and an opportunity to present a keynote address at a future IGU Conference or Congress.
