The international “Night of Geography”, also known as La Nuit de Géographie or simply “GeoNight” was initially proposed by the CNFG (French National Geographical Committee) at a national scale in 2017. Since then, the initiative has expanded internationally, first in Europe, thanks to EUGEO, and now in many countries globally. The main goals of GeoNight are relatively simple: one night (or evening) a year, events are organized simultaneously around the world. These events aim to highlight geography and geographers, give the greater public a chance to familiarise themselves with geographical concepts and studies, and to make geographical research more accessible. The proposed events are generally free and open to the public. All elements of the discipline can be highlighted, and includes promotion of food, wine, books, a diversity of artforms etc.
