Be involved in the IMY activities by offering short cartography lectures. Here are some hints on how to organize them.

What are Short Lecture Programs?

A short lecture may be 15 minutes of presentation followed by a 5 minute break and then another lecture, leading to a total of three lectures within the hour.

Who organizes Short Lecture Programs?

The National Committee representatives may be involved in helping to organize Short Lecture Programmes and finding topics to present.

What are some examples of topics for Short Lecture Programmes?

Examples of short lecture programmes topics include:

  • Contents of the World of Maps book – choose the things you want to show for 15 minutes
  • Climate change – demonstrate global and local or regional problems by the use of maps
  • Present map-related research from your country, e.g. invite researchers of the fields of geography, archaeology, geology, etc…
  • Demonstrate content from the field of spatial planning, e.g. actual plans in housing and infrastructure
