Psiloritis Mountain Member Of European & Global Geoparks Network

Due to its rich geodiversity, its picturesque scenery, and its long-lasting history and tradition, Psiloritis Geopark was included, from its early foundation, at the European Geoparks Network, and later at the Global Geoparks Network.

Since then, Psiloritis Geopark, in co-operation with the Municipalities and other Bodies of the local authorities and communities, developed the appropriate infrastructure to provide to both its inhabitants and its guests a high-quality life in a non-urban environment.

Today Psiloritis geopark is played an active role in the global efforts for the conservation and promotion of the environment, of the natural and cultural heritage, as well as of the sustainable local development through geo-tourism and other kinds of alternative tourism.

On 17th September 2015, in Paris, the General Assembly of UNESCO decided the creation of a new territorial program, the "International Geosciences and Geoparks Program", under which territories can be nominated as UNESCO Global Geoparks.  Since then Psiloritis is recognized as UNESCO Global Geopark.
