World Geography Night 2022 is an event taking place worldwide on Friday 1 April 2022.
Since its first edition in 2018, World Geography Night (GeoNight) aims to highlight geography and geographers and to be able to give the general public the opportunity to become familiar with geographical concepts and studies, making geographical research more accessible to all.
This year the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence of the University of Padua is actively participating in the programme with the aim of contributing to the dissemination and diffusion of geography and GIScience topics through didactic and scientific activities such as workshops and seminars.
The event we present in this news is:
How To Lie with Maps | Workshop on interactive cartography, between the sacred and the profane.
– 17.00 – 19.00 pm (CEST)
This interactive workshop on critical cartography is hosted by Kollectiv Orangotango (Berlin) who will involve us in an interactive workshop, between the sacred and the profane, to help us understand the logic and power of maps, through simple tools of digital cartography at the time of croudsourcing, participatory mapping and voluntary geography. A workshop to de-construct maps and build new ones, inclusive and multi-verse. One world, many worlds. One map, many maps.
