A Geopark is a place of knowledge transfer. Knowledge about mining, the history of the earth and the rich history of the region is conveyed not only in mining museums, show tunnels or the visitor center, but also on hiking trails with display boards and geosites. The knowledge transfer is low-threshold and accessible to all interested parties. The Visitor Center is free to visit and the website can be accessed at any time. The Geosites in nature are also always accessible with comprehensive information and additional images. In this way, as many people as possible should be addressed and interest in topics relating to geology, mining, sustainability and geotourism etc. should be supported.
The Ore of the Alps UNESCO Global Geopark also offers many opportunities to engage with geological topics for schools. For example, the Geopark participates in the MINT summer program and offers exciting guided tours.
Lectures and (specialist) guided tours and guided hikes are also aimed at the specialist public. The Geopark also offers universities an open-air laboratory with great potential for research and teaching in the subjects of geology and geography and similar disciplines. Relevant literature and brochures are regularly produced and published in the Geopark and research activities for theses at universities are also supported.
