ONE OF THE MISSIONS OF THE FAMENNE-ARDENNE UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARK IS DEVELOPING EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES FOR BOTH SCHOOLS AND FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
The main thrust of this responsibility to educate is aimed primarily at popularising geology in particular, and the sciences in general. We need to teach the future adults who will inherit this planet about the scientific, societal and ecological issues they will face. Telling the story of our planet Earth is the essence of our mission. This is achieved by organising outreach lectures in schools and for local people, setting up educational activities to raise awareness of the importance of sustainable development, organising visits to geosites, active communication via our social networks, and more.
