With the planet at the centre of everyone’s concerns, the French Geological Society (SGF) is encouraging all geoscience stakeholders across France to engage with the wider public to make people more familiar with the beauty and history of our landscapes and the Earth’s precious resources.

Over 3 days, you will learn about the geodiversity of our landscapes, our coasts and even our cities. A wide range of events will take place, including:

  • field trips,
  • geowalks to learn about the kinds of building stone used in our cities,
  • talks,
  • film screenings,
  • exhibitions,
  • museums opening especially for the occasion, and
  • virtual events.
