Tianzhushan Geopark Is Awarded A Green Card for the Revalidation of UNESCO Global Geopark
Pubdate:1/15/2020 WednesdayCategory:Geopark News

Recently, the report of the 4th session of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Council was circulated. In September 2019, the UNESCO Global Geoparks Council met in Lombok, Indonesia, to review the new applications, applications for area extension as well as revalidations of existing UNESCO Global Geoparks.

Following the review of the Tianzhushan (China) revalidation report, the UGGpC decided to award a GREEN card with the following recommendations:

1.  Develop links between geological and the other territorial heritages (i.e. natural biotic, culture, intangible) through interpretation, education and tours. Train local guides, tourism operators and local people etc. about the links between geology and ecology to enable knowledge sharing with visitors.

2.  Consider improving the UGGp geological information and explanation inside the education corridors by simplifying interpretations.

3.  Develop a partnership strategy which includes clear methodology and criteria on becoming a partner, outlining the associated agreements with the Geopark. This is applicable to accommodation, catering, transport providers, activity providers and producers of local products, but is not restricted to those identified. Consider providing these partners and local producers with greater visibility exploiting the geopark logo and brand as well as specific promotional material.

4.  Consider providing visitors with interesting information related to the protection of old trees (Tianzushan Mountain). Explore the possibility of using new technologies to limit panel size.

UNESCO Global Geoparks are revalidated every four years, focusing on the management, infrastructure construction, geoheritage protection, scientific research, science education, community development and so on. Such kind of dynamic revalidation is conducive to the sustainable development of UGGps.
