The IAYG is proud to support the International Geographical Union’s efforts for young and early career geographers. Through partnerships between the IAYG and the IGU, the IAYG supports the IGU Young & Early Career Geographers Taskforce’s activities, works closely with the IGU and the Taskforce on key programmes for early career geographers, and sponsors research prizes for young geographers at IGU events.

Representing young geographers

In addition to the IAYG’s role as a worldwide institution in education and youth empowerment, the IAYG is proud of its unique role representing students and young people in geography & global studies all across the world. Several components of the IAYG family, including the IAYG University Society System, are made up entirely of young people. Partnerships like those between the IAYG and the IGU-YECG help us better serve and empower young geographers.
