Description: AGAT (Geographical Association for Environment and Land) was born in Rome in December 2008, it was created by some students and ex students of the degree courses of „Geography“ and „Land Management and Development“ of Sapienza University of Rome in order to support activities in geographical field of research and environment education. The association is also composed by academic, public and private professionals  working in the geographical field and also by people interested in environmental conservation and development.
