On 7 November 2014, APGN Kyushu Geoparks Workshop themed at “Direction of Kyushu Geoparks in the Asia Pacific Region” was held in Aso Global Geopark.
Inviting Yeung Ka-ming (the head of Hong Kong Global Geopark) as an adviser, a representative of all seven Kyushu Geoparks presented their ideas on value and task of each Geoparks to boost geotourisms to connect Kyushu and the Asia Pacific Region.
After sharing their unique ideas and activities, Yeung delivered Hong Kong Geopark’s experience in management, networking and science popularization to representatives of Kyushu Geoparks.
The workshop became also a fruitful sharing session to reinforce the collaboration between Hong Kong Geopark and Kyushu Geoparks.

Unzen Volcanic Area Global Global Geopark, Amakusa Geopark, Kirishima Geopark, Oita Bungo-ono Geopark, Oita Himeshima Geopark, Sakurajima and Kinkowan Geopark and Aso Global Geopark.
