The International Geographic Union will reach its 100th anniversary in 2022. To celebrate this creation, the evolution of the discipline over the last century, and its contemporary and future significance, the French Committee of Geography (CNFG) is organizing an extraordinary conference, gathering geographers from all the continents. The Paris 2022 UGI Centennial Congress will take place between July 18 and July 22 2022. The event will be organised in venues epitomising the living heart of geography in the city: Sorbonne, Institut de Géographie, Société de Géographie.

Contemporary geography has managed to borrow various features from the different social and natural sciences to modernize its approaches while remaining a science of space. This has led to the blossoming of works in diverse fields, which are providing key elements for the understanding of the complexity and uncertainties of our world and their evolutions at different scales.

Being at the interfaces between urban planning, environment, sociology, risk studies, geomatics and many more fields, geographers have elaborated tools to read and organise spaces and articulate this with the transformations of societies. Through this, contemporary geography is accompanying societies in the analysis of and projection on the future developments of our spaces.

The local organisation committee is proud and happy to organise the celebration of this anniversary of UGI in Paris. As a world city, a home for culture, education and science, Paris will host this centennial congress in its most prestigious university, la Sorbonne, offering thereby an exceptional event and plenty of opportunities for geographers from around the globe.
