The Headquarters of the Russian Geographical Society in Moscow, which in 2023 will act as the central platform for the Geographical Dictation, will give the opportunity to take part in an international educational campaign from anywhere in the world. Up to 10,000 people will be able to test their knowledge of geography in a remote format.
To remotely become a participant in the Geographical Dictation at the central venue of the RGS’s project you must first register. You can do this until 23:59 Moscow time, on November 17. The questions will be accessed via a personal link that the organizers will send to the registered users.
The link will be valid only on November 19, from 12:00 to 13:00 Moscow time. By clicking on it, the participants will be able to fill out a questionnaire, receive an individual 13-digit form number (code), watch a video with a welcome speech from the host of the event and an explanation of the rules, as well as answer the Dictation questions simultaneously with watching a video presentation.
The ninth Geographical Dictation of the Russian Geographical Society will be held on November 19 in Russia and abroad. The international educational campaign of the Russian Geographical Society will be held in-person and remotely at specially organized venues, as well as online on the campaign's website dictant.rgo.ru . At in-person and remote venues, the Dictation will begin on November 19, at 12:00 local time.
Please note: it is better to save the individual 13-digit code before starting the test. The number is a password that allows you to return to completing the tasks in the event of a connection failure. The code will be displayed while you are taking the Dictation, as well as after its completion. In the future, you can use it to find out your results.
