GGN express solidarity to Chinese Global Geoparks


Dear colleagues from the Chinese Global Geoparks,

At this special moment, when the Chinese people are making heroic efforts to win the fight against the novel corona virus (2019-nCoV), the GGN Executive Board (ExB), on behalf of all the Global Geopark Network Members, expresses our greatest respect and sympathy to you.

We would like to express our sympathy and thoughts especially to our colleagues of the Huanggang-Dabieshan UGGp and Shennongjia UGGp in Hubei Province, the area most affected by the novel corona virus (2019-nCoV).

Since the beginning of this year, the novel corona virus has caused great damages to our society. It has also strongly affected the normal operation of Global Geoparks in China.

We are all following the immense efforts made by the Chinese Authorities and the Chinese people to win the fight with the novel corona virus.

We do understand the difficulties you are facing and we will be next to you in the next period, taking initiatives to express our solidarity and support.

Dear Chinese Global Geoparks colleagues,

Your difficulty is our difficulty, the Global Geoparks Network big family is and will always be with you.

Our thoughts and our hearts are with you!

The Global Geoparks Network will always firmly support the healthy development of every member of our Network.

Wuhan Jiayou! Hubei Jiayou!! China Jiayou!!!
