At the invitation of the French National Geographical Committee, the RGSSA has submitted a presentation for GeoNight 2023 which will be held on 14 April. GeoNight originated in France in 2017 and has since expanded into Europe and then the rest of the world. Over the years, GeoNight events have become highly popular and successful.
The aim is 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 RGSSA has provided presentations in 2021 and 2022. For 2023 a presentation prepared by Andrew Lothian on the subject, The Paradox of Beautiful Landscapes, has been prepared and submitted. This may be viewed at: https://rgssa.org.au/documents/RGSSA-Beautiful-Landscapes.pdf
