About this book

Language: German

This volume presents the geological treasures of the Geopark Porphyrland, an ecological park in Grimma, Germany, and shows that Geoparks encourage public awareness of the environment and as a source of raw materials. The contributions demonstrate that an area's geological significance can be conserved and promoted for science, education and culture and can be used as a sustaianable economic asset such as through the development of responsible tourism.

Summary in German:
Mit dieser Tagung werden nicht nur die geologischen Schätze des Geoparks Porphyrland anhand von Vorträgen und Exkursionen vorgestellt. Unter dem Motto "Kultur.Wert.Stein" werden die generellen Chancen und Möglichkeiten von Geoparks für die geowissenschaftliche Umweltbildung, für die Förderung des Rohstoffbewusstseins in der Bevölkerung und zur geotouristischen Vermarktung beleuchtet.
