[Geography Week 2013] Creating and Nurturing Inclusive Spaces: Everyone, Everyday, Everywhere

It is with great pleasure that we are announcing this year’s  Geography  Week  which  will 
commence on the 19th and continues until the 22nd of this month. With the theme “Creating and Nurturing Inclusive Spaces: Everyone, Everyday, Everywhere,”  we take Geography closer to our everyday experiences in celebrating the  discipline’s  contribution  to  our  everyday  affairs. We seek to present the multiple dimensions that constitute our spaces  –  academic, recreational, social, public  –  as a means towards promoting inclusive and nurturing spaces for dialog, participation, and collective action. 

The following activities highlight this week-long celebration: 

March 14-21Sikat Ka sa Geog!: Role Model Students of the Department of Geography
