The Workshop “Geoparks in volcanic areas: sustainable development strategies” aims to be a forum of discussion amongst European and Global geoparks in volcanic areas whose most common feature – the presence of volcanoes in its territories – give them peculiar characteristics and common desideratum in fields like science and research, tourism, education for natural disasters and use of endogenous resources, like the geothermal energy.

The special focus of this forum is to promote a wide discussion on sustainable strategies of local socioeconomic development and to share good practices in areas such as Economy (especially in Geotourism) and Geoconservation, as a way to raise awareness of local companies and other stakeholders on the promotion of initiatives and activities on those domains.
