1st Symposium "To know and share caves and karsts - Understanding, conservation and geotourism" - March 6-9, 2018 - Ardèche, France
The Grand Project - The Pont d’Arc Cavern - Syndicat mixte is pleased to announce that the 1st Symposium “To know and share caves and karsts - Understanding, conservation and geotourism” will be held in Ardèche (South of France) from March 6–9th, 2018.
Caves and karsts are specific ecosystems that represent important environmental archives, meaningful geological and cultural heritage. They are truly relevant to understand a part of the Earth’s and humanity’s history. These environments are also fragile biological hotspots, and are essential parts of important and strategic groundwater resources.
Caves and karsts can be used to promote rural cultures, based on natural products, genuine handicrafts, hidden cultural heritage, and can help in extending the tourist season.
The aim of this Symposium is to establish a discussion between scientists, local authority managers, NGOs and experts to share experiences and knowledge about cave and karst management.
The symposium will consist in three round tables with distinguished keynote speakers and a field trip in Ardèche to observe and get immersed in karstic landscapes.
