What is the Global Geoparks Network?

The Global Network of National Geoparks (GGN - Global Geoparks Network) is a voluntary network of Global Geoparks supported by UNESCO. The GGN 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 Global Geopark.

While the GGN as a whole comes together every two years, the GGN functions through the operation of regional networks such as the European Geoparks Network which meets twice a year to develop and promote joint activities.
