Welcome to AAG Regions Connect
A Joint Climate Forward Initiative
Participate in the Applied Geography Conference and five AAG Regional Division annual meetings, connected virtually! This unique opportunity is an experimental project that brings together the Applied Geography Conference and the Southwest, East Lakes, West Lakes, Pacific Coast, New England-St. Lawrence Valley, and Great Plains/Rocky Mountains divisions of the AAG for regional in-person meetings and shared virtual content from all conference venues. This model is part of a larger effort at AAG to reduce carbon emissions at events, as called for by the AAG Climate Action Task Force. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into any technical issues.
