GEOfood at the European Geoparks Conference in Sierra Norte de Sevilla UNESCO Global Geopark
October 7, 2019
Magma UNESCO Global Geopark was very active at the European Geoparks Conference last September. Magma representatives presented to the audience the GEOfood concept and its future development within the H2020 European Project RURITAGE and organized an evening workshop on GEOfood.
11 UGGs participated at the event together with 2 aspiring territories from Sweden and Norway. We have the chance to discuss future projects and ideas.
At the end of the Conference the GEOfood brand got attention from more than 10 new potential UNESCO Global Geoparks which would like to get informed and explore the possibility to adopt the brand. Criteria are simple and aim to link the special Geoparks geological heritage with the raw material and local food experiences.
