    <strong>Cilento and Vallo di Diano Geopark, Italy</strong>

    As the global development strategies of the Earth Sciences assume more and more of an important role in the world Cilento and Vallo di Diano Geopark has the honor of hosting the 12th European Geoparks Conference. The geo'hazards and climate change affect all human activities and can strongly condition the future of humanity. In fact, life, property, economic and financial losses due to natural hazards and the impact of disasters on society have both increased dramatically over the last couple of decades. Scientists 'both physical and social', policy makers, insurance companies, disaster managers, and the public themselves, have different ways for understanding natural geo'hazards and sustainable use of natural resources.
    This conference aims to: verify how Geoparks can direct the scientific knowledge of the academic community on these items, understand how the Geoparks address these issues in the educational system, and disseminate the role of Geoparks on the public awareness and sustainable use of natural resources.
