It is the goal of a European Geopark supported by UNESCO to contribute to the positive development of the local community. Through arrangements and tours the Gea Norvegica has cooperated with a number of different organizations, from smaller artisans to larger companies.
We are proud to be able to exhibit a region with a lot of local initiative based on the geological heritage, distinctive culture and traditions. We are in the process of formalizing this cooperation further through contracts with other partners. We will continue our collaboration with existing partners at the same time as we welcome new contacts.
