GeoNight is an initiative proposed for the first time by the CNFG (French National Geographical Committee) on a national scale in 2017. From 2018, the initiative expanded internationally, first in Europe, thanks to EUGEO, and then even further, thanks to UGI. APG joined the initiative and presents 6 visits from north to south of the country with the collaboration of Universities with higher education in Geography. The initiative is open to all interested parties.
