Abstract

The International Geological Congress (IGC) represents a unique global meeting of geoscientists. Being selected to host the IGC is a strongly competitive process and the planning, organisation, administration and implementation of the congress require a significant national scale investment of resources. However, in focussing the attention of geoscientists from around the globe onto the host nation, the IGC also has the potential to produce extensive benefits at a range of scales; from the national scale, through to the organisational scale, and down to the personal level. The aim of the present study was to investigate the impacts of the 34th International Geological Congress from several different perspectives in an attempt to capture the impacts at these different scales.
