Lauhanvuori-Hämeenkangas Geopark ry

Lauhanvuori–Hämeenkangas Geopark ry is a registered association working to guide the ten-municipality area encompassing Suupohja, Pohjois-Satakunta and Luoteis-Pirkanmaa toward gaining UNESCO Global Geopark membership.

Achieving membership status requires a high degree of activity, particularly in promoting tourism, environmental education, local economies, sustainable development and even international networking. The main thing is for the Geopark to be established in co-operation with municipalities, businesses, associations, organisations and local people. The mandate of the registered association includes themes related to geology, nature, culture, geotourism, environmental education, local economies and sustainable development.
