ProGEO - International Association for the Conservation of Geological Heritage
ProGEO was established in 1993 as a European Association. In June 2021, the General Assembly decided to expand its geographical scope and now ProGEO is an International Association. This change requires some adaptations about the management and functioning structure of the association, which will be made during the next months.
We are a NGO with national groups in some countries and individual members distributed worldwide.
Is an association of all kinds of conservation practitioners and all types of geoscientists, who are involved in geoconservation as planners, as geoheritage managers and interpreters, in geological surveys, as museum curators, researchers, educationalists and those concerned with tourism.
We look to a future in which conservation of geoheritage and management of geodiversity in all landscapes is given equal prominence in all countries, integrated and on a par with other forms of biodiversity management and as a part of nature conservation. This is the focus of ProGEO together with projects that will strengthen our capacity in this field.
ProGEO is an affiliated organisation of the IUGS (International Union of Geological Sciences), and a member of the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).
