2016 Charter

2016 International Charter on Geographical Education

Since 1992 the world has continued to change and with it the discipline of geography and geographical education have continued to develop. Therefore the Commission on Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union has drafted a new Charter. Compared with 1992 this new Charter is more compact and now includes an Action Plan. Geographical educators seeking more detail are advised to consult the 1992 Charter and the Declarations listed below.

The final draft of the New Charter was presented at the 2016 IGU conference in Beijing and was endorsed (August 24, 2016) by the General Assembly of the International Geographical Union.
