WDCAG 2024: Relevance
March 15-16, 2024, Okanagan College. CAG Western Division.


Call for Abstracts

The theme of this meeting is ‘Relevance’.

Relevance is what makes geography powerful. Geographers are in important positions in government, business, and the community. We have insights that recognize challenges others don’t, and we provide solutions. We understand why solutions that work in one place won’t work in another. We make connections and see the big picture.

We invite participants to reflect on how your work is relevant, whether to society, a community, a government department, an employer, or to your own development.

Abstract Submission


Please submit a Word document, with a limit of 300 words including author(s), institution(s), and keywords. Please include a statement of why this work is relevant!
