In late September Andrew travelled to Saint John, New Brunswick,WP_20140920_21_19_21_Pro to attend the 6th International UNESCO Conference on Global Geoparks.

Andrew joined a cross-border delegation from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, to represent the Heritage Trust and deliver a presentation about the wide range of work we deliver yearly.

Andrew participated in a number of workshops which explored the potential to develop and promote UNESCO accredited heritage sites in Northern Ireland, including World Heritage, Biosphere Reserves and Global Geoparks.

Since the conference, interest in the Binevenagh, Causeway Coast and Antrim Coast and Glens Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty has soared, and the Heritage Trust have secured partners for a EU funding application to explore the common geological heritage of North-West Europe and North America.
