European Geoparks Network
The European Geoparks Network (EGN) works in collaboration with the Global Geoparks Network (GGN), in which there are currently 147 Geoparks from 41 countries worldwide.
There are currently 73 European Geoparks within the EGN from 24 European countries, and this number is increasing all the time. The UK alone has seven Geoparks, including two in Scotland, two in England, two in Wales and one that crosses the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
Members of the EGN and GGN share ideas, experiences and skills and work closely with other members on joint projects. The emphasis on long-term sustainable development with community involvement is essential for a successful Geopark.
