Discover Platåbergens Geopark

WHAT IS A GEOPARK? | A geopark is an area with geology of international importance – this means something that is unique in the world. In a geopark the story of the connections between geology, biology and cultural historiy is told, and gives us understanding for how we can administer our natural resources and our planet in a sustainable way. Today there is a large global network of heoparks. The status an area gets as a geopark is a quality stamp and a proof that the natural environment around us is worth paying attention to internationally. During the autumn 2019 an application about becoming Sweden’s first Unesco Global Geopark was submitted.
