GEO Week
Equality, Diversity
and Inclusion



For any registration queries, including visa invitation letters / official delegations / attendees, please contact geosummit@presconf.co.za

Please note that the South African State Security Agency requires all attendees to register at least one month in advance. The deadline for registrations is therefore 6 October 2023.

The event organizers will work with GEO leadership to register official delegations.

We anticipate the release of a mobile "app" which will have some information about GEO Week 2023 and its attendees.

Invitational Travel Request

This year, individuals can request invitational travel support to GEO Week 2023 from the GEO Secretariat Trust Fund through an online form.  The Secretariat will prioritize funding for those who are both contributing to GEO Week 2023 governance processes and who come from lower income countries. The Secretariat will also consider the principles underlying equity, diversity, and inclusion to strive for broad representation at GEO Week 2023. Keeping in line with past practice, the Secretariat can only support travel for one delegate from each delegation.

Please note that no Minister-level travel can be supported by the GEO Secretariat.

UPDATE: The deadline for applying for invitational travel support has now passed. The GEO Secretariat began notifications to selected individuals on 20 September and anticipates all notifications to selected individuals will be complete by 30 September.

Because of the volume of requests received, only those selected will be notified.
