Dear colleagues,

First of all, on behalf of the GeoNight organising committee, we wish you all the best for this new year 2023. Let’s hope this one will be less turbulent and more joyful.

As it has become a yearly tradition, we are contacting you to inform you that this year, the GeoNight is going to take place on April, 14th 2023, simultaneously all around the world and in the format of your choice (face-to-face, online, hybrid, etc.).

This year marks the 7th edition of the “Nuit de la Géographie/GeoNight”, which was initially launched in 2017 by the CNFG and rapidly supported and promoted by EUGEO and IGU. 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.

Remember that the main goal of GeoNight’s events are 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/photos competition, virtual urban walks (using Google Street View, for instance), quizzes (using a video-conference platform), amongst others. Just be creative, as always!

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

In order to submit an event proposal, you can fill out the following form until the 5th of February:

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any question.
For the organising commitee (,
