As IGEE’s signature annual event, GEEF is the cornerstone for fulfilling the mission and vision of the organisation – accomplishing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

For example, parallel sessions during GEEF 2018 covered various topics including water management; climate change adaptation; responsible consumption and production; social economy and community development; youth’s path to engagement and empowerment; safeguarding youth in the digital age; and ICT for higher education.

Abstracts should be single-spaced, within one-page, and include the following information: (1) author(s) name, position, affiliation, and official address; (2) contact information of corresponding author(s); and (3) title and abstract of the paper.
