Subcommission on Sites
The Subcomisión on Sites forms part of the International Commission on Geoheritage, which is, in turn, a scientific Commission established by the International Union of Geological Sciences.
Knowledge of Earth and its history is based on places and landscapes that have been described and studied since the birth of the geological sciences.
Some of these places have a special value. They are inspiring and extraordinary places that have contributed significantly to the development of Geological Sciences. They represent the memory of the Earth and are part of the natural heritage that we must in equal parts value, manage, use and conserve with determination. Our mandate is to coordinate an International collaboration that will lead to identify and give recognition to those sites of the highest scientifc value.
1. Establishment of Global standards for the recognition of IUGS Geological Heritage Sites.
2. Coordination of the IUGS Geological Heritage Sites program.
3. Compilation and maintenance of an IUGS Geological Heritage Sites database.
4. Collaboration among International organizations related to geological sites.
5. Permanent collaboration with UNESCO Global Geoparks Program coordinating the assessment of the International value of the geological Heritage of aspiring UNESCO Global Geoparks.
