Geoparks could be one of the sustainable eco-tourism options that can provide job possibilities and opportunities for people to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Despite the fact that the pandemic Covid-19 crisis is still ongoing, we are working together to find a better solution to advance our Geopark activities.
