Message from the Chairperson

Welcome to the website of the Hong Kong Geographical Association (HKGA). 

It is with great pleasure that we extend our warmest welcome to all members, collaborators, scholars, and friends of the geography communities in Hong Kong and beyond. As the Chairperson of HKGA, I am most honoured to address you and share our organisation's mission, values and endeavours.

HKGA aims to promote interest in, stimulate teaching of and cultivate research about geography and takes pride in fostering a dynamic and inclusive community. We actively organise conferences, seminars, workshops, and field trips where scholars, teachers, students and enthusiasts can exchange ideas, collaborate on projects, and broaden their horizons.

Each year, we hold a Hong Kong Geography Olympiad (HKGeo), which is an open competition for all secondary school students. Outstanding geography students are selected and trained to represent Hong Kong in the International Geography Olympiad (iGeo). Our students have achieved excellent results in the past few years. In addition, in promoting academic publishing, the Asian Geographer Journal strives to integrate the academic work of geographers more fully with our community.

We encourage you to participate in our events, contribute to our publications, and become an integral part of our growing geography network. Thank you for visiting the HKGA's website, and we look forward to engaging with you.

Dr MAH Ngar-yin, Daphne
