Conception and implementation of an exhibition on Valley of Zat (Morocco) (Prof. Nour-Eddine Jalil, Dr. Jean-Guy Michard, Prof. Jose-Luis Brianso-Penalva) A scientific and didactic exhibition on the Valley of Zat (Month 48) will be designed and exhibited in Morocco (Museum/Interpretation centre) and France (MNHN) as a dissemination tool based on local heritage (geology, biodiversity, geography, etc.) and on all material collected during the project - as a media, scientific and didactical tool of the consortium. This exhibition will be presented during the last meeting (Month 46) of the consortium in Paris (MNHN).

1 international conference

Organisation of an international conference on geoparks and proceedings editing this geopark conference (Month 46) focused in developing countries, with little or without Geoparks existence in their territories, will be held in Barcelona (Spain) in order to mix theoretical/research discussions and empirical/practical issues with field visits (Geopark of Central Catalonia). This scientific conference will give worldwide impacts on geoparks based on main research issues and innovative methodology as an integrated approach for developing countries (Africa, Latin America and Asia) and beneficiaries (public/private).

GIS cartography

A GIS cartography on the engravings site with Partner 1 (WP4)

Multimedia tools

Creation of multimedia tools to be diffused on the website Technical tools (newsletters, forum, consortium documents database, etc.) will be designed in order to stock and diffuse information. Besides, media supports such as videos or brochures will be produced and diffused as a didactical and communication tool linked to case study (Valley of Zat, Atlas Mountain) for different target groups (schools, local population, regional tourism centre, stakeholders, etc.).

Website

Creation and development of a website adapted to consortium activities (databases, inventories, trainings, conferences, etc.) in order to disseminate scientific results and share knowledge between Europe/Maghreb Region. It will be a multilingual website (French, Spanish, Arab and English) in order to diffuse as large as possible all type of information connected with the project.

Virtual museum

Creation of a virtual museum (participative cartography) on local heritage and communities regarding the Valley of Zat with Partner 1 (WP4).
