On 28th November 2019,  the Management Board of Ly Son – Sa Huynh Geopark in collaboration with the People’s Committee of Quang Ngai city organized a training to provide the participants with the basic concept of UNESCO Global Geopark and overall introduction to Ly Son – Sa Huynh Geopark. This aims to raise the awareness of related stakeholders on the promotion and preservation of heritage values in the long run.

The event welcomed around 170 participants from a diverse backgrounds including leaders of local authorities at district, commune and hamlet level; representatives of educational institutes; tourism establishments (hotels, restaurants, travel agencies), among others.

In the opening remark, Mr. Nguyen Minh Tri – Director of Department of Culture, Sport and Tourism welcomed the presence of all participants whom he emphasized as key players conveying the knowledge to people of grassroot level in the upcoming time.

The workshop covered three main topics: the establishment and development of LSSH Geopark; geological heritages and cultural heritages in the territory of the Geopark.  It was then followed by a fruitful discussion, with opens sharing and recommendations brought up by the audience. Most of them found the training very informative and they were eager for future tourism development if LSSH Geopark successfully gained the membership of UNESCO Global Geopark Network. One shared that it would be ideal as every citizen living in the territory of LSSH Geopark became a tour guide, which again indicated the importance of community strength and engagement in the development of LSSH Geopark in particular that was entirely aligned with the fundamental feature of UNESCO Geopark.

As planned, similar training will be delivered in all other nine districts in the territory of the Ly Son – Sa Huynh Geopark in December 2019.
