Dear Colleagues, Scientists and Educators,

The 6th International Congress on Geographical Education (UCEK/ICGE-6) will be held on 19-22 September 2024 in partnership with Eskişehir Osmangazi University, Faculty of Education, Department of Turkish and Social Sciences Education and Istanbul Directorate of National Education With the theme "Disasters and Disaster Education in All Aspects" in Istanbul University, Prof. Dr. Fuat Sezgin Congress, and Culture Center. We are honored to invite you to the International Congress on Geographical Education (UCEK/ICGE-6).

In this announcement, some subheadings from geography education, all sub-branches of geography and other geography-related disciplines are included, but no restrictions are made on the topics at the congress. Geography educators, geographers, all academicians in geography-related fields (especially all relevant branches and institutions working on disasters and disaster education, Education, History, Biology, City and Regional Planning, Social Studies, Politics, Environment, Ecology, Landscape, Archaeology, We invite experts, researchers, decision makers, national and local administrators and other experts, teachers and students in all fields related to geography (Geology, Maps, Geomatics, Mining, Transportation, etc.) to present, share and listen to their research and work. 

Today, the main source of natural and human problems that arise due to human-space interaction is people's inadequate practices regarding space and having little knowledge of it. So much so that after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, the Japanese emphasized that the main reason for the unexpected destruction, damage and human losses in the earthquake was the Japanese's insufficient knowledge of the place. Because one of the mistakes they have made in the past 30 years regarding human-space interaction is to make the high school geography course an elective course instead of being compulsory, Japan has re-taught the high school geography course since 2022 in order to prevent the Japanese generation from making the same mistake and to base human-space interaction and relations on more accurate information and foundations. included among the compulsory courses. 

Therefore, with geography education, it is inevitable for humans to emphasize their environment and how they should understand it and live in harmony with it, rather than just using it and dominating it. In this context, it can be said that the "Disasters and Disaster Education in All Aspects" approach will help plan a sustainable unity for both nature and humans.

On the other hand, in recent years, the place of geography and geography education in both schools and public institutions seems to have weakened dramatically in various countries, including Turkey. However, as geography educators and geographers, it is predicted that the next century and the next generation will face serious environmental and spatial problems. For this reason, we invite those working in geography and all academic fields closely related to it to present papers and/or posters and organize workshops on any subject related to the theme of "Disasters and Disaster Education in All Aspects". We believe that we can thus create an infrastructure for a more effective and permanent geography education.
