History of the Event

The first international meeting of geoscientists concerned with education and  training in Geosciences was promoted by the IUGS – International Union of Geological Sciences. The congress was held in Southampton, UK, in 1993. The second and most exciting event of the series was held in Hilo, Hawaii, USA, in 1997. In 2000, the third event was held in Sydney, Australia. At the time, the community decided to create the International Geoscience Education Organization (IGEO).
