Fairmont State University GeoSavvy Guide: GeoCafe


A GeoCafe is a time to together, in-person or virtual, to socialize and talk geography in a relaxed atmosphere. Engaging in "small talk" or social conversation is a great way to encourage geo-literacy through everyday conversations. 

We welcome you to participate in your own GeoCafe with friends and family or attend any of the AAG sponsored Twitter GeoCafe discussions. 

#GeographersRespond is a social media awareness hashtag to show the range, relevance, and diversity of work that geographers do.
