The AGE was founded in 1975 during the celebration of the Fourth National Conference of Geography. Since then, its activity has been focused on promoting scientific meetings, coordinating the activities of the Spanish Geography in society and collaborating with other national and international geographic associations.

The AGE currently brings together nearly 1,000 people connected with Geography through teaching, research and the free practice of the profession of geographers.

Given the wide variety of topics related to Geography and the ever greater thematic specialization, the Association has set up Working Groups whose members can join in order to pursue certain specific lines of research and study.

Association of Geographers The Association of Geographers is a professional association whose mission is to defend the interests of geographers and geographers. It is an institution to promote the social utility of geography as a profession
