Dear EUGEO representatives,

First of all, a happy and successful new year. With this mail I would like to inform you about some forthcoming activities and events of EUGEO.

Firstly, the Night of Geography 2020 will be held on 3rd April this year. This will be the fourth edition of GeoNight initiated by our French member society CNFG in 2017, in order to increase the recognition of geographical knowledge among the public. This initiative, has in the meantime become truly European and is increasingly taking on a worldwide dimension due to the active support of the International Geographical Union (IGU). In fact, this is a good opportunity for all of us to give the general public a better understanding of geography and to make awareness the relevance of geographical knowledge in our swiftly changing world. We hope you will also mobilize your members for active participation this year and the number of programmes will further increase. If you have any question regarding GeoNight2020 please let us know.

Secondly, the main activity of EUGEO this year will be the Seminar and General Assembly to be held in Vilnius, Lithuania 23-25 April 2020. Our host will be the Institute of Geosciences, University of Vilnius. We plan arrival on 23rd April (Thursday) during the day and a full day meeting on 24th April (Friday) including our General Assembly in the morning followed by the Seminar. Depending on the number of presentations we may continue on Saturday morning and finish our work with a bus tour. The topic of the Seminar this year will be “Landscape: old meets new”, which provides a good opportunity to discuss some aspects of landscape development, both from physical and human geographical perspectives. During the General Assembly we plan a discussion on possible future activities of EUGEO including the 2021 congress in Prague and the possible contribution of EUGEO to the IGU centennial conference, August 2022, Paris. Please plan your trip to Vilnius asap, try to arrive afternoon 23, and depart afternoon 25 if possible. We will inform you about the detailed programme soon. Local organizers recommended the following hotels lying nearby the venue: „Grata by Centrum Hotels” or „Corner Hotel”.

Thirdly, the main geographical congress of 2020 at the global scale is the 34th International Geographical Congress (IGC) which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, 17-21 August, 2020. The theme of the congress is Geography: Bridging the Continents. Submission of abstracts has been extended until 28th January and early bird registration closes 9th March 2020. I very much hope a good attendance of European geographers and visibility of our member societies in Istanbul at the next IGC.

Finally, I hope to see many of you in Vilnius in April.

La Nuit de la Géographie / The Night of Geography / La Noche de la Geografía

En 2017, el Comité Nacional Francés de Geografía inició la primera «Noche de Geografía» en París y en una docena de ciudades francesas. En 2018, las iniciativas, con el apoyo de EUGEO, alcanzan una escala europea. Los dos eventos tuvieron mucho éxito, con una gran diversidad de público y organizadores. La Noche de la Geografía se celebró en muchos países europeos con miles de personas que asistieron a los eventos.
La cuarta edición tendrá lugar el viernes 3 de abril de 2020 y se ampliará a escala internacional.

Objetivos generales

Este evento tiene como objetivo presentar la geografía y los geógrafos, dar al público en general la oportunidad de conocerlos mejor, hacer que la investigación geográfica sea más accesible. Los eventos propuestos deben, siempre que sea posible, tener el carácter de gratuitos y abiertos a todos los públicos.

Una variedad de eventos

Los eventos deben tener lugar en la tarde y durante la noche, para dar la bienvenida a varios tipos de público, puesto que no se trata de eventos puramente académicos. Se invita a los organizadores a presentar aspectos inusuales y muchas veces lúdicos de las ciencias geográficas.

Algunos de los eventos deberían llevarse a cabo dentro de un edificio, para fomentar los intercambios y la unión, con talleres que serán muy variados, desde los más académicos (conferencias, exposiciones, mesas redondas, etc.) hasta los más divertidos (buffets, juegos geográficos  multisesoriales, actuaciones, etc.). Los organizadores pueden presentar trabajos vinculados a la educación geográfica, software SIG o nuevas tecnologías, sueños o proyectos geográficos locos, etc.
Otros eventos tendrán lugar afuera: se pueden organizar pequeñas excursiones y paseos urbanos, con una variedad de propósitos: análisis de percepción, evaluación comparativa, dibujo y mapeo, entrevistas, fotografía, etc. ¡Durante la noche, la geografía cambia!

Organización general

El Comité Nacional Francés de Geografía ha iniciado y promueve la Noche de la Geografía con EUGEO a escala europea, pero el espíritu es que todos los eventos deben organizarse de manera descentralizada, desde un punto de vista logístico y financiero.
El objetivo es presentar la creatividad de la iniciativa local y la variedad de personas, instituciones, asociaciones que pueden sentirse preocupadas y les gustaría participar.
No hay una meta numérica por alcanzar. Los organizadores locales pueden establecer solo un pequeño café geográfico o una breve caminata temática por la ciudad, u organizar un evento más grande que involucre muchas intervenciones científicas.
Se ha creado un pequeño comité organizador internacional para coordinar algunas acciones, dar consejos, comunicar sobre los eventos. ¡Pero la mayoría del trabajo lo hacen los organizadores locales para simplificar las cosas!

Costes 

Los presupuestos se pueden mantener a un nivel bajo, ya que el espíritu de la Noche de la Geografía se basa en la apertura y la flexibilidad. Los lugares pueden estar afuera, en instituciones culturales y académicas, o en cafés, en lugares que los organizadores no tienen necesariamente que alquilar. El material técnico puede ser prestado por laboratorios de investigación, universidades o patrocinadores. Los estudiantes y las asociaciones pueden ofrecerse como voluntarios para ayudar con la logística y la asistencia al público. La comunicación realizada a través de las redes sociales no cuesta nada, entre otras opciones.

En cualquier caso, los posibles costos, como los problemas de seguridad, serán pagados por los organizadores locales, por lo que le sugerimos que movilice laboratorios de investigación y posibles patrocinadores, o solicite subsidios públicos, que a su vez darían más visibilidad al evento. El Comité francés no puede financiar los eventos.
Cabe destacar que estos costos también conllevan grandes beneficios: las personas pueden cambiar sus ideas sobre lo que es la geografía y lo que hacen los geógrafos, otras personas pueden involucrarse (más estudiantes y más interesados ​​profesionales, etc.), y no olvidemos el placer que tenemos en pasar tiempo juntos y vivir una geografía plural y sorprendente!
