The University of Guyana’s Faculty of Earth and Environment Sciences (FEES) in collaboration with SERVIR Amazonia, NASA, USAID, Spatial Information Group (SIG), and CIAT hosted an International Course (workshop) from January 20 to January 24, 2020 at the Center for Information Technology (CIT) of the University’s Turkeyen Campus. The training workshop/course was titled “Using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) to monitor mangrove forests in Guyana”.
Are you interested in partaking in a study semester abroad? The Trier University of Applied Sciences at Umwelt-Campus Birkenfeld, Germany, is again inviting students to apply to their exchange programme. FEES students who participated in the exchange programme in the past have shared that it has been a rewarding part of their academic experience.

Geography Awareness Week is an annual event held in the third week of November. The event focuses on involving more persons in the geographical world; the interconnectivity of humans and the natural environment, to each other, and to the greater world we live in. The University of Guyana Geographical Society used the opportunity to engage members of the public on some of the critical geographical issues facing us, through a varied programme of events.
The University of Guyana Geographical Society partnered with Policy Forum Guyana and UG Female Empowerment Movement in order to sensitise the public on the need for climate action in Guyana. This issue is close to the heart of the Society as it embodies the ideas of sustainable development and as we see the effects of climate change and sea level rise in our country.
On September 12, 2019, the FEES invited Mateusz Wrazidło to present his PhD thesis work as part of a research group specialised in robotics applied to environmental monitoring. His research topic is “Conservation through Cultivation. TEPUI-SAT: Autonomous environmental monitoring and simulation system for habitat research and cultivation of vulnerable tropical flora species.”
The Faculty of Earth and Environmental Sciences is pleased to announce the remarkable achievements of several of our undergraduate students on the international stage!
