The European Geoparks Network

The European Geoparks Network currently consists of 98 territories working together to preserve and enhance their geological heritage, through comprehensive actions for the local sustainable development. The Network was created with the aim of protecting, highlighting and promoting both the geological, the natural and cultural heritage of rural areas of Europe, developing and promoting educational and geotourism activities with high quality standards.

The members are evaluated every four years by experts from the Network and other International Organizations with the aim of ensuring high quality characteristics in each area. All members of the Network are recognized as a UNESCO Global Geoparks.
