Description : Under the patronage of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, we are planning a workshop that will focus on geotourism in Canada and complement the special session on geoheritage. We want to bring together several interested stakeholders (i.e. geoscientists, decision makers, planners, conservation and tourism specialists, and the general public) from Canada and elsewhere who have different perceptions of geoheritage. The time has come to look at the future of geotourism and geoparks in Canada.
