IGC 2021 is moving rapidly toward a virtual meeting via Zoom Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 18–20 June 2021.  Attendance is free and open to all participants – students are especially encouraged to attend.  Each day of the conference will have two sessions at times selected to provide maximum accessibility for time-zones around the world (details below).


We invite you and your students to participate in this conference on applications of geodesign to projects addressing immediate and critical global challenges including climate change, climate migration, and global equity. Researchers, academics, practitioners, and students from an array of allied disciplines will gather to learn from and discuss presentations covering these topics.


We have forty projects registered for IGC 2021 and are looking forward to a fruitful working meeting to share our work but also to work together to refine the way IGC projects are conducted.


  • All project presentations will be prepared as short videos.  Those will be made available before the conference to enable attendees to prepare discussion questions.

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


There is a draft schedule of the IGC 2021 meeting below.  Attendees will recognize a similar format to our face-to-face meetings, but with increased time for working discussion sessions, designed to continue to develop the IGC process based on our collective experiences.  One element of that will be a special session devoted to Teaching Strategies for IGC, focusing on distance education.
