Special activities will be organised by the geopark management for young students. The activities include interactive games and activities, such as geological knowledge Q & A sessions, Earth, park, and local knowledge competitions, ‘love my hometown – love my country’ essay contests, ‘learn to use topographic maps’ programmes, ‘using a compass to find direction’ programmes, and treasure hunts in the park. In addition, regular fieldtrips are organised in the spring and autumn, and camps are organised during the summer and winter. These activities utilise the available geopark resources and make the park a learning centre for all young people.
