IGC 2021 is now behind us -- Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 18–20 June 2021.  Attendance was free and open to all participants – students were especially encouraged to attend.  Each day of the conference had two sessions at times selected to provide maximum accessibility for time-zones around the world (details below).


We invite you and your students to continue to benefit from the applications of geodesign to projects posted on the IGC 2021 Completed Projects link. They address the immediate and critical global challenges including climate change, climate migration, and global equity. Researchers, academics, practitioners, and students from an array of allied disciplines gathered to learn from and discuss presentations covering these topics.


Thirty projects were presented and discussed at IGC 2021, resulting in a fruitful working meeting sharing our work but also working together to refine the way IGC projects are conducted.


  • All project presentations were prepared as short videos and are now available at IGC 2021 Completed Projects.

  • All sessions were video recorded and will be made available after editing via the IGC website.
