OLGENAS International Geolympiad is an annual event organized by the Faculty Of Geography Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM). OLGENAS 2024 is competing in geography, this competition is present to provide opportunities for middle school and high school students to increase their competitiveness, compete with each other healthily and more critically, and be able to raise a student affective, cognitive, and psychomotor abilities, remembering that this third parameter is used as a standard for the success of learning. OLGENAS was first held in 2006 which made us pioneers of the Geography Olympiad in Indonesia. And this year OLGENAS International Geolmpiad 2024 will be in its 19th year, We stepped into our game and went international to reach more young people and introduce a geographical perspective on contemporary issues. OLGENAS International Geolympiad 2024 will be held completely offline at the Faculty Of Geography Universitas Gadjah Mada
The logo consists of 3 main components which are Human Body, Sun, and Leaf that forms a hexagon. The hexagon shows the elemental bond of carbon where carbon is the object of the issues in this theme. In addition, the shape of the three components is arranged similarly to the three-dimensional plane formed from the hexagonal, there is a cube, referring to the spatial aspect. Meanwhile, the three main components represent the OLGENAS International Geolympiad 2024 theme. The Human Body represents the concept of sensing, in this case, the senses that humans have. Sun refers to potential renewable energy sources in Indonesia along with the Leaf component which refers to the environmental context as a bond to the concept of Sustainable Development.
introducing our theme
The theme “Sensing the Earth: Spatial Approach to Achieve Low Carbon Future” consists of several key words that have important meaning. The word “Sensing” describes the act of observing and measuring using sensors or special tools. “The Earth” refers to the planet Earth which includes our entire ecosystem and living environment. “Spatial” emphasizes the importance of understanding space and position in a geographic context, including mapping and geospatial data. “Approach” refers to the means or methods used to solve environmental problems. “To Achieve” highlights the goal of achieving a future with low carbon emissions, namely reducing the impact of climate change. The “Low Carbon Future” is a vision of a future in which greenhouse gas emissions have been significantly reduced through a shift to clean energy sources and sustainable practices. The overall theme reflects a focus on using spatial information to understand environmental challenges and achieve a sustainable future.
