WHO WE ARE
HOW IT STARTED.
Over 600 participants from more than 60 countries came together at the Oxford Geoheritage Virtual Conference, 25-29 May 2020. Appreciating the values of the natural environment and noting the threats from human actions, they shared current research in geodiversity and geoheritage.
Four of the conference delegates then called for the establishment of an International Geodiversity Day, aimed at increasing worldwide understanding and awareness of geodiversity and geoheritage issues. This project is led by those four delegates:
Prof José Brilha
Prof Murray Gray
University of Minho, Portugal
Queen Mary University of London, UK
Dr Jack Matthews
Oxford University Museum of Natural History, UK
Prof Zbigniew Zwoliński
Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland

This project has been supported by Research England, through the Strategic Priorities Fund allocation to the University of Oxford. The project funding was hosted by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
