SEAGA, the Southeast Asian Geography 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 2017 conference will be the 13th conference organized by SEAGA.


The conference theme is: “Geography for global understanding: sustainable changes in environment, society and people” 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 environment, society and people, so as to inform the decision-making and actions of society, private enterprise, and governments.
