International Geodiversity Day

International Geodiversity Day is a worldwide celebration, bringing people together on October 6 each year, to promote the many aspects of geodiversity. International Geodiversity Day was proclaimed by UNESCO at the 41st General Conference in 2021. 

Geodiversity is all the parts of nature that aren't alive; including everything from minerals and fossils, to soils and spectacular landscapes. 

The use and understanding of geodiversity is essential to the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
