2. Methodology
Split research into parts, divide parts to individual expertise

Comparison with other geoparks & situations


(literature study)

Exchange study results. Upload partial results on EVS


site Join individual parts into one document Remark: small collaboration, more individual working

3A. Geoconservation
Geoconservation aims to preserve the natural diversity of:
geological features(bedrock) geomorphological (landform) soil features and processes

and to maintain natural rates and magnitudes of change in those


features and processes (source: Sharples, 2002)

Interrelation biodiversity - geodiversity

3C. Education
Importance of education in a Geopark A geopark achieves its goals through a three-pronged approach: conservation, education and geotourism.

3C. Education
Education in Haeg Geopark

There are two main issues:


Management
the management for the Geopark is not an independent entity

Budget
There is no financial plan for the Geopark, so neither for education.
Some existing programs (cooperation with university, local schools Some plans not implemented

Conclusion
Lot of opportunities for HCDGP! Budget is generally the main issue Can (mass)tourism fit with geoconservation & sustainable development? Remark: holistic view on three pillars is difficult to keep Pros contras - actors? Definitely incomplete
