While the Geopark secretariat endeavors to strengthen its governance and financial status, the Geopark Council proudly retains the grass-roots features of the previous entity. Our commitment towards bottom-up decision making is resolute, as our geopark has its origin in an enthusiastic two-decade long civil movement aimed at establishing a global geopark.
To ensure wide participation of the members of the movement, their delegates will deliberate on proposals from the secretariat. Representatives of the Board of Education of the local governments have also joined the delegation meeting since the vision of the Global Geopark Network further prevails into this region.
When it is deemed necessary, the council may organize working groups to address specific issues pertaining to the operation of the geopark. As of June 2022, the council envisions launching a working group to lay down a mid-term strategy for promotion of the education for sustainable development and another group to accelerate implementation of the existing educational programs in local schools.
