2020 marks the 70th year of the Philippine Geographical Society (PGS) however with no formal face-to-face NCGS (National Conference on Geographical Studies) this year, we are inviting everyone to our NCGS Lecture Series this Saturday, 19 December 2020 at 1:00PM (GMT+8).
For this Saturday’s NCGS Lecture Series entitled Geography in the Midst of Disasters, we invite two members of the UP Department of Geography alumni (Hanz Alejandria and Junico Boribor) to impart their knowledge and expertise on disaster studies and mitigation as well as insights on inter-agency collaborations, and how the discipline of geography aid and assist not just in the spatial understanding of hazards and disasters but also in reflecting how multiple actants, agents, and stakeholders are complicit and interpellated in the final decisions and outcomes in the management of disasters.
The NCGS Lecture Series endeavors to bring together academics, applied geographers and practitioners, local communities, and civil society to talk, discuss, and debate upon place-based issues transecting and intersecting peoples, landscapes, situations, and practices from local to supranational scales.
