Globalization, climate change and mobile information societies are at the heart of research and teaching of Geographers at the University of Zurich. Following the slogan "One Earth - Many Worlds" we engage with topics of public relevance, be it in Switzerland, in Los Angeles, in remote mountainous regions, in rural areas of the global south, or in cyberspace. Close cooperation with private and public organizations ensures that our findings have real societal benefits.
We strive to provide an equal and inclusive learning, working, and living environment at our department. We aim to promote professionalism and courtesy in interactions amongst members of staff and in doing so enhance the positive impact of our research, teaching, and service.
