The 36IGC GIFT workshop will take place over two and a half days during the 36th International Geological Congress. The workshop will explore the theme of ‘Mountains, water and the environment’, through topical presentations from scientists at the cutting-edge of research, together with hands-on teaching activities. The 36IGC GIFT will take place from Wednesday 4th to Friday 6th March 2020 at the India Expo Centre & Mart Convention Centre in the National Capital Region of New Delhi, India.

Teachers and educators from the Indian subcontinent and around the world can apply to participate in GIFT until the application closing date of Friday 31st January by completing an online application form. Successful teachers will receive a stipend which will cover their travel and accommodation costs partially or completely (depending on distance of travel), and will be notified of the results of their application by mid-February 2020.

The successful teachers will not only have the opportunity of taking part in a world-class geoscience educational experience of cutting edge research and innovative classroom activities, but will also be able to network with a range of teachers from different backgrounds and experience an international scientific conference in a major convention centre with its exhibition, presentations and poster opportunities.
