SCOTTISH GEOLOGY FESTIVAL 2021 LAUNCH EVENT
In 2019, Brennan Jordan from the University of South Dakota spent four months in Scotland examining approaches to geoconservation and the interpretation of geoheritage. In exploring Scotland’s key geoheritage sites, National Parks and Geoparks, he discovered examples of good practice in visitor centres and in-situ interpretative boards, but also many missed opportunities to celebrate Scotland’s world-class geoheritage and to make connections between scenic views and the underlying geology responsible for them.
We are delighted to welcome Brennan Jordan as keynote speaker for the launch event of the Scottish Geology Festival 2021. He will be joined by a panel of experts to discuss the challenges of good geoheritage interpretation, the gaps and the opportunities for Scotland’s geo-communities to work together to improve how we communicate the richness of Scotland’s geology and its contribution to society.
