Education and Awareness

It is a prerequisite that all UNESCO Global Geoparks develop and operate educational activities for all ages to spread awareness of our geological heritage and its links to other aspects of our natural, cultural and intangible heritages.

UNESCO Global Geoparks offer educational programmes for schools and offer special activities for children through “Kids Clubs” or special “Fossil Fun Days”.

UNESCO Global Geoparks also offer education, both formal and informal, for adults and retired people while many provide training for local people who can then, in turn, teach others.

Through strong ties with Niagara School Boards, Ohnia:kara is designing elementary and secondary awareness programs, to be delivered to our students, creating awareness, in fun ways, of the uniqueness of the Niagara region.  A new perspective.
