About Us:

English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark provides a much loved and valued service for the community and is one of only 127 areas around the world to hold this prestigious status.

  • Since designation in 2007 the status has helped many of the Geopark partners and community groups stand out above the crowd when it comes to funding applications. These successful funding bids have helped projects and works in the area improving facilities for locals and visitors alike, like the Geoplay Park in Paignton.
  • Geopark events and activities help local people access and understand the place where they live and the wider world.
  • The status provides opportunities for our young people to learn about, experience and understand their home and opens their eyes to other cultures and environments.
  • The status links us to a wide network of places around the world with whom we share and can learn.
  • The status highlights everything that makes the bay a special place to live, work and play and is bringing our long forgotten, but very important, geology, heritage and culture back to the fore in public and academic realms.
  • Retaining the designation (which is assessed every four years) ensures that the English Riviera continues to be associated with UNESCO, a very strong and well recognised brand of quality which encourages new people to visit and businesses to locate here, thereby helping the economy.

We need your help to support our amazing Geopark Ambassador volunteers who play a much valued role in helping us raise awareness of the status and help out at our many events throughout the year.  Your help will enable us to continue to support our current Ambassadors and hopefully expand the programme.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours Sincerely,

Ms Melanie Border Geopark Coordinator
