Another prestigious award for Iain Hay - 2024 Laureat d’honneur

This international recognition from the International Geographical Union (IGU) for “service to the discipline at the international, national and local scales” is a tremendous honour and arguably one of the most esteemed in international Geography. The award will be presented to Iain in Dublin, Ireland on Friday 30th August.

Iain served on the Executive of the IGU from 2014 to 2024, and was First Vice President from 2020 to 2022. Iain is particularly thrilled to be described by IGU as “an accomplished influencer and knowledge provocateur whose impacts on Geography over more than three decades have been innovative, cumulative and far-reaching internationally.”
