In 2023, the large-scale international educational campaign of the Russian Geographical Society "Geographical Dictation" will set a new record. For the first time, more than 10,000 venues joined it. This means that each participant will find a convenient venue in Russia or abroad.
Traditionally, you can take the Dictation of the Russian Geographical Society in schools, universities, museums, libraries, and other places in an in-person or remote format. Every year more and more exciting and interesting venues join the campaign.
In 2023, the Dictation will be taken for the first time in the specially protected natural territory "Reserves of Taimyr" in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, in the tourist complex "Kingdom of Permafrost" in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the natural complex "VETRENO" in the Yaroslavl Region, armored train No. 13 "Tulskiy Rabochiy" (eng. “Tula Worker”), at the Kalinin NPP in the city of Udomlya, and in many other unusual places.
For the first time, the event was joined by the Moscow Longevity Centers – the largest leisure spaces in Moscow, where older Muscovites will be able to take the Dictation. Not for the first time, the “Lastochka” trains travelling between Nizhny Novgorod and Moscow, the international children’s center “Artek”, and the Russian children’s center “Orlyonok” participate in the Geographical Dictation.
To become a participant, select the appropriate venue in the Geography of the Dictation section on the event’s website, and register in the specified way. You can also test yourself at the Central Venue of the RGS: in an in-person format at the Shuvalov Building of Lomonosov Moscow State University and in a remote format. This platform will accommodate up to 10,000 fans of geographical brain teasers.
Recall that the Geographical Dictation – 2023 will be held on November 19, at 12:00 local time. For remote participation at the Central Venue, make an adjustment for Moscow time.
The Geographical Dictation is a great opportunity to test your knowledge of geography, broaden your horizons, and take part in an exciting event that unites geography lovers all over the world.
