The geological heritage of Europe is an important part of the European natural heritage. Fragments of this heritage – present in areas known as Geoparks - represent parts of a unique continent-scale puzzle of the geological history and evolution of Europe
The INTERREG IIIC Project aims:
to the strengthening of the co-operation between the European Geoparks in creating and applying a common strategy for geotourism development on a European level
to evolve the Network to a permanent European structure, with members representing the European geological heritage in all E.U. countries
to promote the consciousness and awareness of the public towards the protection of the natural heritage
and to uplift the quality of services offered to tourists.
