The Planning and Environment Research Group (PERG) would like to invite expressions of interest and proposals for sponsored sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference to be held in London, Tuesday 27th – Friday 30th August.

PERG welcomes proposals that address the group’s remit of planning, environment and sustainability, as well as sessions that engage directly with the theme of this year’s conference.

The conference will be chaired by Professor Hester Parr (University of Glasgow). The Chair’s theme is Geographies of trouble / geographies of hope.

PERG are able to sponsor 12 sessions and also welcome co-sponsored sessions with other research groups. Each session length is 1 hour and 40mins and in addition to paper-based sessions we also encourage innovation formats to sessions:


Proposals (max 300 words) seeking PERG sponsorship should be sent directly to Rebecca Windemer (PERG Secretary) windmerr@cardiff.ac.uk by no later than Monday 7th January for consideration.

Session proposers will be informed about a decision by Friday 11th January, with finalised sessions needing to be submitted to the RGS by the 15th of February
