Distinguished Scientists, Teachers, and Employees of Different Institutions;
The common aim of the Congresses of Geography Education (UCEK 2018 and UCEK 2019, UCEK 2020,2021…) held in the past and planned to be held in the future; to bring the leading academicians, researchers and decision-makers of the field together (to ensure professional integrity), to carry out joint academic activities and, to create a platform called “Strong Geography Education and Strong Future” by thinking, planning and acting in unison.
The first of the International Congress of Geography Education was held in Nevşehir Hacı Bektaş University, Turkey on 08-10 November 2018. The second was held in Eskişehir Osmangazi University, Turkey on 03-05 October 2019, and the third International Congress of Geography Education will be organized by Sivas Cumhuriyet University Turkish and Social Sciences Education on 25-27 June 2020.
Investment decisions for the social and economic development of a region, a district or a country require a deep-rooted systematic geographical knowledge and skill. İbn-i Haldun says “Geography is Destiny” and Michael Palin says “Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future”.
Geography is the “knowledge” that makes the distance closer. Geography is the “skill” that connects continents with bridges and tunnels. Geography is the “value” that integrates different societies and cultures.
In short, geography is a love, a passion. The main theme of the III International Congress of Geography Education (UCEK 2020) that will be organized in order to find solutions together with the problems determined in scientific integrity was determined as “Geography Education for Life” by the organizing committee.
Distinguished scientists, researchers and educators who are passionate about geography; We will be pleased to welcome you to the III International Congress of Geography Education, with the desire to turn into an unforgettable experience and success for all participants. We hope to meet you in Sivas between 25 and 27 June 2020.
