A geopark is a unique natural area with special geological significance and natural and cultural landscapes, and serves the three objectives of conservation, education and sustained development.

A Geopark serves to conserve the unique landforms and landscapes in Hong Kong, through protecting the landform environment that provides natural habitat to many living things. Such an integrated conservation strategy is also a global trend. Therefore, we are establishing the geopark to promote landform and rock conservation.

Geoparks meeting prescribed conditions may be listed as national and global geoparks. We believe that the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark will provide momentum for local nature conservation and will be a focal point for further action by the government and the interested parties.

Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark, as part of China, will thrive to display to the world its natural conservation results which Hong Kong people are proud of. The international image of Hong Kong does not have to be just a city with many buildings but can also be a natural and healthy international metropolis.
