What is EGEA?

EGEA stands for European Geography Association for students and young geographers. It is a network uniting around 5000 geography students and young geographers from almost 100 cities in more than 30 countries across Europe.


Vision

EGEA brings together young geographers in an atmosphere of respect, inclusion and personal development. This inspires global understanding of environmental and social processes and enables us to bring about a positive impact on society.

Mission

EGEA targets European students and young professionals in the field of Geography to encourage sharing, networking, volunteering and alternative informal peer-learning.

Our common identity drives our dedication to build an innovative and better future for all.
We aim to strengthen the strategic position of Geography in Europe.

We empower young geographers and encourage their active participation in decision making processes on a European, national and local level.

Together we want to build Europe as a place of friendship across borders, intercultural dialogue, diversity, sustainability and non-discrimination.
