Keywords:San’in Kaigan Unesco Global Geopark, Education
In the University of Hyogo, Japan, we apply the Geopark and their heritages in order to better understanding regional resource management. For example, the lecture“Introduction to Geopark” for graduate students picks up the effort and system of Geopark as the way to manage the regional resources. In this lecture, we have fieldwork and classroom lectures. In the part of the fieldwork, students visit the museum and Geosite in San’in Kaigan Unesco Global Geopark to study and observe the activity of local people. In the part of the classroom lecture, students study the concept and current situation of Geopark and we discuss such subjects of “What is Geopark?” “What is the Celebrating Earth Heritage?” “Relation between Celebrating Earth Heritage and Sustainable Development ”.
This presentation reports educational application and results of the discussion about Geopark in Graduate School of Regional Resource Management, University of Hyogo.
