Friday - 03/01/2020 10:18
On 2 January 2020, the Management Board of Ly Son – Sa Huynh Geopark (LSSH MB) held a meeting to update its members on the progress of 2019, tentative action plan of 2020 and an introduction of educational materials. Nearly 30 people attended the meeting which were chaired by Mr. Dang Ngoc Dung – Vice Chairman of Quang Ngai Provincial People’s Committee and Mr. Nguyen Minh Tri – Director of the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Progress report of 2019 showed a huge amount of work had been done thanks to the effective collaboration among LSSH MB, Vietnam Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources and relevant stakeholders. Among them, the most significant one was the submission of LSSH’s application dossier to UNESCO in November. The year of 2020 was expected to be busy as the field visit of UNESCO expert team was due in July if LSSH application passed the desktop verification in March. Till then, efforts would be put into a few key tasks including: completing tourism infrastructure, diversifying communication activities, strengthening partnerships, etc. to make LSSH Geopark ready for the verification visit.

The meeting welcomed the presence of a special guest – Dr. Guy Martini – the General Secretary of Global Geopark Network who had been working closely with LSSH Geopark during the preparation of the application. Guy introduced to the meeting a few innovative educational materials that he had been working on so far aiming to help people to better understand geology and significant geological heritages of LSSH Geopark in a visual and simple way, which would be officially introduced for public use shortly. Positive feedbacks were exchanged among participants.  

Following the first phase of dossier development, the geopark is now moving to second phase of field work. It is hoped that with close support from the province’s leaders and effective cooperatation with relevant stakeholders, the geopark’s action plan in 2020 will be delivered successfully.
