BGS welcomes the news from UNESCO today that the UK now has seven UNESCO Global Geoparks. The new UNESCO Global Geoparks programme was announced by UNESCO this morning, in a historic vote that created the first new programme in UNESCO since World Heritage in 1972. The seven existing UK Global Geoparks automatically become UNESCO Global Geoparks, putting them alongside UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
