Some more good news for Italy and Symposia!
Symposia and the Adamello Brenta Nature Geopark won the call to host the 8th International Conference on UNESCO Global Geoparks in 2018.
The GGN 2018 conference will take place September 7-13, 2018 in the beautiful Italian region of Trentino. The location will be Madonna di Campiglio, in the heart of the Adamello Brenta Geopark. The conference aims at being a profound reflection on the role of tourism and on its proper management by the host sites, as well as an answer to the fundamental question: can the GGN itself become a tourism product in which each Geopark maintains its own tourist identity?
The topic proposed: “The Geoparks as innovative tools for geoconservation, geotourism and local sustainable development” is crucial to the Adamello Brenta Nature Geopark, and all the Italian Geoparks, constantly striving to combine the conservation of their geological heritage with a long-lasting economic promotion.
Key factors in winning the bid were the strong support by the Italian National Committee for Geoparks, as well as the collaboration with Symposia.
Once again the hard work of our staff and the ability to interpret our partners’ needs has proven successful in bringing a great international event to Italy!
