The IGC is the quadrennial meeting of the International Geographical Union (IGU). The congress combines the traditional meetings of the IGC Commissions with a wide range of sessions addressing the following four key topics:

•Global Change and Globalisation
•Society and Environment
•Risks and Conflicts
•Urbanisation and Demographic Change

Geographers bring the wide-ranging perspectives and methodology of their subject to bear on these four major thematic complexes and contribute to the solution of urgent scientific and socio-political issues – bringing research down to earth.
