SEAGA Conference 2012 in Singapore

SEAGA, the Southeast Asian Geographers Association, established in 1990, is a regional association of geographers and other academic, education, government, and private sector professionals in related fields like history, the geo- and environmental sciences, and urban planning. The 2012 conference will be the 11th conference that has been organized by SEAGA.

Conference Theme

The conference theme is: “Whose Geography? Space, place and cultures of Asia” and we are inviting multidimensional perspectives on this issue from scholars, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and teachers.  The aim of the conference is to advance the discourse on the issues of space, place and cultures in Asia, so as to inform the decision-making and actions of society, private enterprise, and governments. This theme was chosen based on the recommendation of the delegation to the previous SEAGA conference in Hanoi as they felt that there was a need for the community to address these geographical issues from multiple perspectives.

Major themes of interest:

  • Changing Physical Landscapes in Southeast Asia
  • Living with Global Environmental Change
  • SE Asia and Environmental Management
  • Changing Population, carrying capacities and ecological footprints
  • Sustainable Development and Southeast Asia
  • Politics, policies and sustainability
  • Health and development issues
  • Cities and sustainable development
  • Economic growth, competitiveness and sustainable development
  • Changing Agriculture in SE Asia
  • Geographies of rural transition
  • New regionalisms in Southeast Asia
  • Sustainability and Education
  • Geography Education
  • Field-based teaching in Southeast Asian geography
  • Remote sensing and GIS: their contribution to environmental management in Southeast Asia
