What is geography?

Dear iGeo friends,

We all hope that the IGEO 2021 can take place as scheduled, in Istanbul. However, we recognize the possibility of this not being the case. Whatever the circumstances we will hold an Olympiad next summer. Our first choice is to organize a face to face event as we had organised for 2020. Alternatively, we may organise an online competition for teams competing from their own countries, if travel to Turkey is not possible. Please keep checking our websites for updates.

Best wishes,
iGeo co-chairs

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.

Future iGeo's

2021: Istanbul, Turkey

2022: Paris, France

2023: Bandung, Indonesia
