Global Geoparks Network

The Global Geoparks Network was founded in 2004 and is a dynamic network where members are committed to work together and exchange ideas of best practise and join in common projects to raise the quality standards of all products and practises of a UNESCO global geoparks.

At present, there are 169 UNESCO global geoparks spread across 44 countries, 41 of them located in China. To become a UNESCO global geopark, a geopark has to apply to its national government first and submit its official application to UNESCO through the relevant state agencies. The geopark is then assessed by UNESCO, and candidate geoparks that fulfil all the stringent requirements are awarded UNESCO global geopark status, and continue to be assessed every two to four years.
