Field visit for Recommended Geopark Guides (R2G) and R2G operators

Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark has been working with various geopark communities, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders to promote natural conservation and conduct innovative rural area management. In Lai Chi Wo, it launched a Chief Executive’s Community Project, named “Lai Chi Wo Hakka Life”, the “Sustainable Lai Chi Wo Programme”, and the “Management Agreement Scheme at Lai Chi Wo”. In addition, the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark “Ap Chau Story Room” was opened on April 8, 2018. These are a few successful examples of innovation and cooperation.

To deepen the understanding of the Recommended Geopark Guides and R2G operators of the Geopark tourist spots in Lai Chi Wo and Ap Chau, the Geopark Division of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department invited the Ap Chau Community and the Policy for Sustainability Lab of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Hong Kong to jointly organise a field visit. The event attracted more than 30 R2Gs and representatives of R2G operators, who benefited from the exchange of ideas and discussions with various related organizations and stakeholders.
