Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is an honor and a pleasure for me to welcome you to the 34th International Geographical Congress in İstanbul in 2021, Turkey.

İstanbul has an enchanting location spreading over two continents. İstanbul also represents the unique feature of Turkey for serving as a bridge between different cultures. This feature will be the major asset of the 2021 34th IGC in bringing together the Middle East with Europe.

I have no doubt that this meeting will be valuable opportunity to be a part of scientifically enriched environment as well as perfect harmony with all historical beauties of magnificent Istanbul and Turkish hospitality and guaranteed to leave you with unforgettable memories.

I am certain that İstanbul will mobilize the necessary experience, expertise and support for one of the most successful events in the history of the IGU.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and Turkish Geographical Society, we look forward to have the pleasure and excitement of welcoming you to Istanbul.

With warm regards,
IGU 2021 Congress Chairman
