Te Fifth Serbian Congress of Geographers – Innovative Approach and Perspectives of Applied Geography is dedicated to various aspects of applied geography. Geographers
strive to understand natural and social phenomena in the space that surrounds them, whereas their findings are developed in the dialectics with the space. Therefore geographical research refers to the ‘real world’ around us. By disseminating their research results, geographers are given the opportunity to form attitudes of the broader population.
Some geographical disciplines primarily focus on the findings that can be applied in solving urgent issues in a society, which can be observed in the fields of climate
change, environmental protection, demography, tourism, urban and regional planning. The possibilities for the application of geographical research results can be even
broader, so they can refer to the issues of social inequality, social conflict solutions, the development of culture and its geographical distribution, as well as to the issues of
adopting policies that are important for the development of a community. Geography and geographers can and must contribute significantly to the understanding of natural and social processes in the context of global challenges. There is a wide agreement on the exact status of the applied geography in an array of diverse situations in connection with the geographical science, which should inspire researchers to develop applied geography with more enthusiasm wherever they can. On the basis of the above-mentioned, The Fifth Serbian Congress of Geographers is dedicated to the applied geography, with the aim of increasing its presence within the space in which we live and create.
