dc.description v, [x], 282 p. - International Symposium ProGE​O on the Conservation of the Geological Heritage (10º. 2021) es_ES
dc.description.abstract The first international meeting on geoconservation was held in The Netherlands in 1988, with the presence of seven European countries. One of the outputs of this meeting was the establishment of the European Working Group on Earth Science Conservation, which evolved into ProGEO by 1993. Since then, 33 years have passed during which the discipline of Geoheritage has been consolidated worldwide, making Geoconservation a reality. The great advances achieved have materialized in specific legislation for geological heritage and geodiversity, the creation of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Program, the International Commission on Geoheritage (International Union of Geological Sciences), and the Geoheritage Experts Group of IUCN. It is within this international framework that ProGEO will this year 2021 become a worldwide scientific organization. The Geological and Mining Institute of Spain (IGME) has extensive experience in geoconservation, dating back to the 1970s. IGME was the organizer of the 3rd ProGEO Symposium in 1999 at Madrid, and is now once again the organizer of this 10th ProGEO Symposium, with the motto “Building Connections for Global Geoconservation”. We all would have liked to celebrate this Symposium in Segovia, as it had originally been planned for 2020, enjoying the architecture, gastronomy and night life of this beautiful city. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to postpone its celebration to 2021, and the global circumstances further forced a change of plans, obliging to carry out the Symposium fully virtual (online), adapting to the new reality, but also free of charge, thanks to the contributions of ProGEO and IGME. Far from being an obstacle, this online Symposium has facilitated the participation of more than 400 attendees from 58 different countries, with the presentation of 147 abstracts that are included in this book into 7 scientific sessions dedicated to: 1) inventories and research; 2) management and conservation; 3) education and public outreach; 4) geotourism, UNESCO Global Geoparks and local development; 5) geoconservation in protected areas; 6) moveable geoheritage; and 7) geoheritage and cultural heritage. es_ES
