The Geo Promotion Foundation was founded in 1986 by students of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences from the University of Groningen. Over the years Geo Promotion has organized events but also symposia, seminars, and colloquials for the faculty. These activities all have a geographic, spatial, or real estate background.
The foundation goes under the name Stichting Geo Promotion and is located in the city of Groningen.
The foundation aims to stimulate interest and involvement in the geographic and spatial sciences worldwide, thus providing more knowledge from the geographic scientific field.
