This year marks the 8th edition of the “GeoNight / Nuit de la Géographie”, which was initially launched in 2017 by the CNFG Comité National Français de Géographie and rapidly supported and promoted by EUGEO Association of Euroepean Geographical Societies and IGU International Geographical Union. The idea has also been supported by the Polish Geographical Society for years. Over the years, new countries have joined the adventure and hundreds of events have been organised worldwide to promote geography and geographers to so many people.

The main goal of events of GeoNight 2024 (as it was before) is to promote geography and geographers to the general public (and not only academics) one night/evening a year simultaneously around the world. These events can be either organised in person or online. In case you decide to organise events online, various activities could be considered such as: lectures, podcasts, posters or photos competition, virtual urban walks, quizzes, amongst others. Just be creative, as always!

A few years ago, the Italian Association of Geographers put together a website – have a look at last year’s events. The website gathers information on the events organised as well as the key principles of the GeoNight. For 2024, we are naturally going to use that platform again.
