Energy and Environment Specialty Group, AAG

Welcome to the Energy and Environment Specialty Group (EESG) of the American Association of Geographers!

After the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the world in unforeseen ways, the AAG meeting was shifted online, making it the first virtual AAG annual meeting. Many of our EESG sponsored sessions also went ahead, reflecting the innovative, insightful, and diverse nature of the EESG community!

Feel free to send anything you would like to be posted on this website, such as papers, links, opinions, jobs, announcements, inquiries, etc. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Warm regards from your outreach coordinators,

Marissa Bell and Trey Murphy
