Here is a brief introduction to the International Geography Youth Summit 2017 (IGYS-2017):

Who are Citizen Geographers?

The Institute of Geographical Studies believes in engaging with geography as a discipline, not just a subject. As such, they look at geography as a framework with which to

  • understand and shape all manner of relationships among disciplines
  • foster more sustainable interactions between us and the environment
  • work towards a more just, benign, and empowering world for everyone

Based on this, a citizen geographer is anyone who engages with geography and applies it actively to make a positive difference in the world around them. This may be at any scale beginning with one’s own neighborhood.
