Lanzarote’s and ‘Archipielago Chinijo’s’ Geo-Park

The island and islets achieve the status of Geo-Park and thus become the 11th Geo-Park and the 65th member of this European Network.

The ‘Lanzarote and Archipielago Chinijo’ project has earned the title of Geo-Park thanks to the unanimous approval of the Coordination Committee of the European Network of Geo-Parks at its 35th meeting, held on April 1st in France.

Therefore, the island becomes the 11th Geo-Park and the 65th member of this European Network. It now aspires to be appointed by the Global Network of Geo-Parks in the forthcoming International Conference that will take place from the 19th to the 22nd of September in Japan.

This is the second territory of the Canary Islands, after el Hierro, to achieve this distinction of the Geo-Parks Network, sponsored by UNESCO. After China, Spain is the territory with more Geo-Parks.

This brand, which comes to add value to the geological and environmental heritage of an area predominantly related to tourism, is another recognition and reward for the island in addition to the title of Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, obtained in 1993.

In addition, it enables the promotion of the island as a ‘Geo-Tourism’ destination, which will allow the island to be part of the European programmes developed from this organism.
