Convener: Benjamin van Wyk de Vries
Fri, 12 Apr, 10:45–13:45
Room 0.15

Geosites are geological features and landforms with specific values. We want to bring interested parties to discuss geosites and their use and evaluation in 1) protected areas including UNESCO Global Geoparks and World Heritage sites, and 2) also the reactivation of the IUGS Global Geosite initiative with greater international cooperation, as suggested by the IUCN Geoheritage Specialist Group, and the IAG geodiversity and geomorphosite working groups.
