Distinguished Geospatial Speaker Series: Promoting Geospatial Education in Europe

Webinar Logo

Join us for the 3rd Distinguished Geospatial Speaker Series presentation. Karl Donert, President of EURGEO, will share with us how the exchange of best practices for geography and GeoICT is needed to transfer innovation to meet changing labour market needs and improve the quality of geo-education. This webinar will explore some of the challenges faced by geo-educators in Europe and discuss how the European Association of Geographers has sought through the YouthMetre and GeoSkills Plus projects to make an impact in this area. 

Through innovative projects like GeoSkills Plus and YouthMetre, we will share the significance of open data, geospatial activities and policy actions essential to promote and enhance geo-education and geo-information literacy at different levels in Europe. (and perhaps give some inspiration to folks in other locations around the world)
