What is a Geopark ?

A Geopark is a unified area where sites and landscapes of international geological significance are managed with a holistic concept of protection, education and sustainable development.
A Geopark uses that heritage, in connection with all other aspects of that area’s natural and cultural heritage, to enhance awareness and understanding of key issues facing society in the context of the dynamic planet we all live on. In a Geopark, you can come in touch with nature, history and culture and discover the link between people and the earth.
