Geography Transcends all Human Endeavours – Ag. Vice-Chancellor
The Ag. Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni has described Geography as one of the interesting disciplines that transcends all human endeavours.
He said Geographers are needed in all sectors of the economy due to the diverse nature of the issues they deal with, adding, “it can therefore not be a missing link in Ghana’s development”.
The Ag. Vice-Chancellor disclosed this in his Welcome Address at the Grand Opening of the 2018 Ghana Geographers/Geography Teachers’ Association Annual Conference held at the North Campus, Winneba on Wednesday 8th July, 2018.

Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni remarked that conferences are bedrocks of an academic environment like the University of Education, Winneba (UEW). He therefore, stressed that, UEW is prepared to offer its support in activities leading to academic progress.
“The University of Education, Winneba offers a good environment for such activities to thrive. In this regard, professional associations such as the Ghana Geographers Association cannot thrive very well without organising events such as conferences, workshops and seminars. It is these and many other reasons that the Management of the University wholeheartedly supports this course.” He said.
He reiterated that conferences showcase the outcomes of researches and equip members with the current trends in a particular discipline. He therefore, encouraged everyone to fully participate in such programmes.
The Ag. Vice-Chancellor indicated that conferences are an occasion for networking, striking acquaintances, making new friends and enable members open up opportunities to take stock of the previous year.
