Hong Kong Global Geopark, Mt. Aso Geopark, Unzen Volcanic Area Global Geopark and Itoigawa Global Geopark are organizing the first APGN student exchange programme from 2 to 9 November 2013. Thirty primary students and six teachers from a Hong Kong school will visit three Japanese geoparks to explore the geological, ecological as well as cultural wonders of their counterparts.
Discussion and sharing with local students from the aspects of natural resources and cultural preservation have been arranged to broaden their understanding of geoconservation and geopark concept. Student exchange is an effective way to promote science popularization through the joint effort of the network members.
