Dedicated to building a continuous partnership and to foster science popularization, Hong Kong Geopark has proactively engaged a group of students and faculties from one of the Hong Kong Geopark Schools through running a Student Exchange Programme between Hong Kong Geopark and Japan Geoparks. During the student exchange programme, over 100 young delegations of both Hong Kong Geopark and Itoigawa Global Geopark gathered on 8 November 2013 at the Itoigawa Elementary School. Participants from the Hong Kong Geopark have also taken the chance to visit a number of geosites and to visit the locals in Unzen Volcanic Area Global Geopark and Aso Geopark from 2 to 4 November 2013.
