Deliverables

  • Training session (2)

    3 training sessions (France, Spain and Morocco) on geopark issues (conservation, management, heritage, development) organised in MNHN (Month 12), UAB (Month 24) and Morocco (Month 36). These training sessions (40 hours each) will be organised into 3 languages (French, Arab and Spanish) with theoretical lectures and practical work in the field (Atlas Mountains, Geopark of Central Catalunia) in order to better assess empirical impacts on territory and local population.

  • Workshop (2)

    International Workshops in order to give an international visibility to our proposal and to the European Geoparks Network, two international workshops will be programmed: Month 18 and Month 36. A limited number of representatives of Latin America and Maghreb countries will be considered: Workshop (2) (M36): “Geopark: A new Opportunity for Dynamising Isolated and Marginal Territories” in Marrakech (UCAM) Duration: 2 working days and one day for the visit of Zat Valley.

  • Geologycal inventory (database)

    Geological inventory for Geopark candidature (month of delivery M36). Evaluation of all geological potentials (geological points of great interest and with clear difference with other existing Geoparks) for the contribution in order to obtain the nomination of UNESCO Geoparks, after the end of the project. Specific disseminations activities/conclusions (partial or global) of WP1, during months 20 to 34. Transfer of results to the WEB project. Collaboration in diffusion and training/education activities together with other WPs or with the whole project output (until month 48).
