We facilitate networking and joint venture development between Geoversity alliance members.
Continual enrichment of the cultural, generational and operational diversity of the ecosystem.
We are recruiting new members and growing a network of open source learning organizations dedicated to the Geoversity mission and vision.
"... a glimpse into the rich potential of this unusual community of purpose."
