Geoparks, in general, are territories that can act on virtually all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that everyone can enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. This is a huge objective that requires a great effort but at the same time marks a line on which to move forward.
Obviously, Geoparks can be more efficient and effective in certain sub-objectives that derive from the 17 SDGs (presented below), while in others, direct impact is limited. Even so, Geoparks have a firm commitment to all SDGs and strive to raise their awareness. Starting with the promotion of heritage, the Geoparks are working to implement integrated sustainable development policies.
The following links provide information about the SDGs and the actions that can be carried out by the Geoparks in relation to each of them.
