17th International Geography Olympiad
Istanbul, Turkey

Last update: April 16th


The 17TH INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHY OLYMPIAD will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, under the auspices of the International Geographical Union Olympiad Task Force. The Olympiad will run from 10 to 16 August, 2021.

The Olympiad is an excellent opportunity to showcase the geographical skills and understandings of a country's geography students, as well as a reward for student excellence.

This website contains information on iGeo's statutes and the component tests, as well as information on the forthcoming and previous iGeos. Examples of past questions can be found via the webpage on the relevant iGeo.

IGeos are overseen by the International Geographical Union Olympiad. We particularly welcome queries from organisations that are considering entering a future iGeo.
