The Adamello Brenta UNESCO Global Geopark has the honour to host the 8th International Conference on UNESCO Global Geoparks, from 11st to 14th September 2018.

It’s reachable through numerous airports in north of Italy served by daily flights to Asia, Europe and America and it’s also easily accessible by train or car

The Adamello Brenta Geopark territory represents an area of extraordinary geological-environmental interest and value, that the Geopark aims to promote and protect through the development of suitable geotourism and activities of sustainable development. You are all invited to discover the spectacular uniqueness of its mountain landscapes and the remarkable geological and geomorphologic diversity of the two mountain ranges that dominate it, strongly linked to the existing, rich biodiversity and above all to experience the local communities, their tradition and culture.

The Conference, with the main theme “Geoparks and Sustainable Development”, will be an opportunity to all participants to share their experiences, create network and exchange the best practices applied in their territories. Come and submit your abstract within the 15th of April, 2018!

In addition to the Conference sessions, special workshops will be organized in collaboration with the relevant GGN Working groups. As usual, in the course of the Conference, one day is dedicated to the mid-conference field trip: participants will have the opportunity to choose among six available options, in order to know and experience the geological, natural and cultural peculiarities of the Adamello Brenta UNESCO Global Geopark.

Moreover, a set of social and cultural events are planned during the Conference, with the opportunity to get in contact with the local people and to live the Italian lifestyle.

You can take the advantage to showcase and promote your own territory, its services, activities and typical products to over eight hundred delegates from all over the world at the Geo-fair.

Families and friends can come with you and participate in the special programme offered to them in order to live and discover the Adamello Brenta Nature Geopark in its entirety during the Conference, from 11th to 14th September.

For those who would like to take the advantage of the journey to Italy and have the possibility to move up or extend their stay, Pre and Post Conference Tour are organised together with the Italian Geoparks, where it will be possible to visit and admire the geological, natural and cultural heritage of Italy and its main cities.
