Quebec Wins Bid for People-Environment Studies Conference

Québec City won earlier this summer an important bid in Rome, Italy. The combined efforts of Université Laval and the Québec City Convention Centre managed to attract the International Association of People-Environment Studies (IAPS), which will host its 26th conference for the first time in North America.

From June 21 to 26, 2020, Université Laval and the Québec City Convention Centre will host some 500 researchers in the fields of architecture, urban planning, psychology, geography, sociology, anthropology, and other disciplines that study people-environment relations.

This conference will be an opportunity to celebrate 50 years of scientific work around the globe on the interrelationships between people and the environment and the long history of education and research in the field at Université Laval’s School of Architecture,”said Carole Després, a Université Laval professor and ambassador for Quebec City.
