23rd May - 7th June 2009

Two special weeks to celebrate earth heritage

The European Geoparks Week, taking place at late May early June each year, is a European - wide festival of Geoparks aimed at raising public awareness of geoconservation and promotion of the geological heritage as well as events aimed at informing the wide public about geotouristic and educational activities in geoparks.

Events are varied and include public talks, activity days for schools, guided walks, exhibitions, workshops ,etc.

While these activities may be common geopark activities for this one week the activities are coordinated and promoted in the same week across the whole European Network.

It provides the Network with the opportunity to demonstrate to our communities that they are part of a wider European Network which is promoting that the sustainable use of our geological heritage can bring the economic benefit for local people.
