Keywords:Practice of Geopark Lecture for various participants

The geopark has many uses: Students, for example, will be able to utilize it for understanding their environmental geography. Local inhabitants can make use of it as life-long teaching materials and become more interested in their own surroundings. . As for tourism, products and souvenirs related to the geopark can be developed, or attractive tourist guiding can be arranged from new points of view.
On the other hand, because the geopark is not always well-known to everyone, the lecturer always needs to find appropriate contents of the course according to participants. Bandaisan Geopark Council has given delivery lectures for various classes and wishes to make people interested in the geopark. I will introduce some of our practices here.
