FIGHT AGAINST CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)

GGN EXPRESS SOLIDARITY TO THE ITALIAN UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARKS

Dear colleagues from all the Italian UNESCO Global Geoparks

We follow the news on the very difficult situation in Italy regarding the outbreak of Corona Virus (COVID-19), which affects the Italian society and economy.

We do understand that the increasing number of cases day by day is generating serious concerns to the Italian society and forced the Italian government to ordered the closure of all schools and universities nationwide as well as all major public events at least until 15 March.

We support the statement of the World Health Organization “This epidemic can be pushed back, with a collective, coordinated and comprehensive approach.”

We do understand that the Italian UNESCO Global Geoparks and their activities in geotourism and education are and will be strongly affected during the next weeks.

Our hearts and thoughts are with all of you! Our precious partners and colleagues of the Italian UNESCO Global Geoparks!

You are not alone!

The GGN community collectively will find the proper ways to support each one of our Italian UNESCO Global Geoparks to overpass the consequences of the epidemic.

Geoparks will continue as always working together and expressing solidarity to all our colleagues and members.

Geoparks through networking, acting in a smart, inclusive and innovative way will continue to promote Geoparks for the benefit of our local communities!
