International Geodiversity Day of UNESCO

In March this year, an announcement on International Geodiversity Day of UNESCO was put on the IGU website, as you see at:

It says as follows: International Geodiversity Day will enable coordinated activities to take place worldwide,  highlighting the importance of geodiversity. Bringing  together people, communities, organisations, and countries across the world, it is expected that this will include  educational, awareness raising, and public and policy engagement activities. More details can be found here:

6th October 2022 is the first International Geodiversity Day in human history! In order to enhance awareness on this international day and significance of geodiversity, and to think what geographers are desired to do in relation to this UNESCO international day internationally, regionally, locally, or as disciplinary groups, the IGU Executive Committee is pleased to organize the following zoom webinar, and to invite everyone interested in these issues.
