Special Issue: Future-Ready Geography


The European Journal of Geography invites submissions for a special issue in connection with the EUROGEO Annual Meeting and Conference 2023 in Krakow to promote a future-oriented exchange and discussion among scholars from all sub-disciplines of geography as well as geography teachers and faculty leaders on how geography as a science and school subject can prepare for the "future"

We invite contributions that address the future of the science of geography. This includes, but is not limited to, research on:

  • What theoretical concepts and paradigms will dominate geographic research and geographic education research in the future?
  • What are the critical issues and challenges for geography as a discipline and school subject in the near future?
  • What is the role of geography in preparing society for the future?
  • What issues will be central to geography as a forward-looking science?
  • How should geography as a science and school subject respond to environmental, socioeconomic, and political issues of global, regional, and local importance in order to effectively use its potential as an applied science?
  • What methods, techniques, and tools of data collection and analysis efficiently support geographers in conducting forward-looking research and predicting ecological and social change?
  • How can the position of geography as a science and school subject be strengthened today and in the future?

We welcome contributions from a variety of disciplines, including human, environmental, and physical geography. Authors are encouraged to submit their papers prior to the annual conference in Krakow. The usual peer review process will be followed.
