1st International Congress of UNESCO Geoparks in Greece & Cyprus The first
International Congress of UNESCO Geoparks in Greece and Cyprus will be held
in Athens on May 17-18.

Greece has five (5) acknowledged UNESCO Global Geoparks and in Cyprus there
is one.

The congress is an event jointly organised by the Greek and Cypriot
National Committees for UNESCO with the support of the Greek and Cypriot
governments, municipalities and the regions "that either have or want to
create geoparks, as well as the Greek Geoparks Forum, administrations of
Geoparks in Greece and Cyprus, universities and museums", ANA-MPA reports.

"The aim of the congress is to promote the role of geoparks and how they
can contribute to sustainable local growth and through geo-tourism."

Greek Culture Minister Lydia Koniordou, Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis
Amanatidis, the Cypriot Agriculture and Environment Minister Costas Kadis
and the Deputy Cyprus government spokesman Klelia Vassiliou will attend the
event.

After Greece and Cyprus, the congress is an open invite for the promotion
and creation of more geoparks throughout the Balkans and the eastern
Mediterranean, "highlighting their potential benefits for local communities
and their role in promoting enviroNmental education and environmental
awareness in Greece and Cyprus."

Later in the year, in September 2018, Italy will host the 8th international
conference on UNESCO's Global Geoparks, which will take place in the
Province of Trentino, in the the country's far north.... / IBNA
