Zhangjiajie signed sister geopark agreement with Arouca Geopark of Portugal

        During the 8th International Conference on UNESCO Global Geoparks held at Madonna di Campiglio of Trento, Italy during Sept. 10-14, a sister geopark agreement was signed by the representatives of Zhangjiajie UNESCO Global Geopark (UGGp) of China and Arouka UNESCO Global Geopark (UGGp) of Portugal. This marked the start of the official cooperation between the two UNESCO Global Geoparks. So far, Zhangjiajie has developed the relationship of sister geoparks with 18 UNESCO Global Geoparks from China and abord.

    The Arouca Geopark is located in northern Portugal and is the second Portuguese geopark to be an EGN/GGN member (April 2009). The area of the geopark is around 330 km2 and corresponds exactly to the administrative borders of the Arouca Municipality with about 25000 inhabitants. A non-profit association composed by public and private institutions with local and regional relevance assures the management of the geopark. The Arouca Geopark Association (AGA) was created just with this purpose, under the leadership of the local municipality. A Scientific Advisory Board with experts from different Portuguese universities supports the science policy and AGA activities.
