Eastern Regional Congress 2024
29 April 2024 to 3 May 2024
Within the framework of the Czech EGEA entities, we decided to organize a congress dedicated to the topic of Mobility shifts. We wish to take you on an adventure to discover how has mobility changed in the past. One of the most recent changes in paradigms of human mobility was caused by the covid-19 pandemic. What other dramatic changes have happened in the last few years? One of the workshop sessions will be dedicated to this topic, others will dive into the areas of sustainable tourism, history of internationalism, remote sensing, spas and hydrology, noise pollution and animal habitat displacement. Do not miss the chance to take part in the only urban congress of 2024 and register with your EGEA account.
Theme of the congress is Mobility shifts. Our workshops will focus on changes covid-19 pandemic brought to the human society, but also on local mineral springs and the changes they are encountering. The scientific topic can be broadly understood as focus on breaking points and changes of paradigms. This will connect human- and physical- geography oriented workshops.
