What is geography?

Dear iGeo friends,

We all hoped that the IGeo 2021 would take place in Istanbul this summer. Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, however, it has been agreed that the event will be held online (according to the vote at the extraordinary IB online meetings on 20 and 22 January 2021).

We are grateful to the Local Organising Committee of the 17th IGEO in Istanbul for generously hosting an online competition for the 2021 IGEO.

The dates are 11th-15th August.
Closing date for registrations is April 20th 2021.

Further information and registration instructions are available on the website

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
