What is EGEA?

EGEA is the European Geography Association for students and young geographers. The goal of EGEA is the exchange of knowledge and information among students of human and physical geography and young graduated geographers. This is done by means of 5 yearly congresses, lots of exchanges and other activities. The European Geographer is a magazine in which the EGEAns can publish their research.

EGEA was founded in 1987 by students from Utrecht, Warsaw and Barcelona. Since then EGEA has grown into a large organisation with around 90 local entities all over Europe, and even Turkey and Israel.

There are four EGEA regions: the North & Baltic region (Scandinavia, Finland, Baltics), the Western region (Western Europe), the Eastern region (Eastern Europe), and the Euromed region (Southern and Southeastern Europe).
