Announcement April 30 2013
Many of us are in the process of registering for the Kyoto conference (Monday August 5 to Friday August 9) as well as booking our flights and accommodation.
It is therefore timely to thank our Japanese colleagues, and in particular Dr Koji OHNISHI (University of Toyama), for arranging a special two day event over the weekend following the conference (Friday August 9 and Saturday August 10) during which we can focus specifically on geographical education as well as network with old and new friends away from the business of the main conference.
In planning your flights and accommodation, please allow extra time to join us for these two days. We attach a flyer for the CGE event, and please note that we do not have to pay in advance but will pay at the conference in cash when we arrive in Kyoto.
If you require an official invitation or confirmation to cover your attendance for the extra time for your university, please let Clare, Joop or I know and we will write a letter on your behalf.
Looking forward to seeing as many Geographical Educators as possible in Kyoto for what is looking like a most interesting and rewarding experience.
Regards and best wishes
Joop, Clare and John
