Programmes and resources

The Granada Geopark has been conducting occasional geo-education activities since the end of the 1990s. In this connection, it is important to highlight both the holding of international conferences related to human paleontology and periodic visits of university students to the territory’s resources. Moreover, the “Know Your District and Discover Your Past” programme (2003–06), aimed at schoolchildren in the area, developed teaching material suited to the educational needs of primary schools, which was included in the school curriculum by local teachers.

There are 129 state schools in the Granada Geopark providing school education for boys and girls up to the age of 16. There are also 7 schools offering intermediate and higher level vocational training courses, as well as 4 music schools, 2 schools of arts and crafts and 2 official language schools.

And not only that: the Granada Geopark offers every teacher in the territory a fabulous teaching guide for various educational levels, which can be consulted and downloaded here.



The Granada Geopark Education Programme conducts training activities for schoolteachers in the geological values of the territory, biodiversity and natural heritage. The territory’s geological and natural resources are visited every year by local students and teachers, as part of the annual school calendar. Since 2016 there has been an annual training programme designed by the Educational Working Group, made up of the Directors of the Teacher In-Service Training Centres, the Rural Development Groups and the Provincial Council of Granada, with the supervision of the Scientific Committee and the Geopark’s geologist. The object of the training is to develop teaching units with the geological and natural resources of the territory, to be incorporated into the students’ teaching content.
