Message of Scientific Secretary Geoheritage

Geotourism as a multidisciplinary subject and science propound tourism industry on one hand, and geoscience on the other hand as an integrated framework. It could be conclude that geotourism leads tourism industry toward geosites and protecting of geology diversity and a better understanding of geoscience knowledge. (Newsome and Dowling, 2010)

In fact geotourism paints new portrait of geology and geoscience for tourists to understand the geology and geomorphology further than merely beauty of a landscape of a site. Regarding to these short brief, this industry consists all infrastructures in these industries such as interpretation, management, accommodation, tours and travel agencies and etc.  The Islamic republic of Iran has many geotourism attractions and Geological Survey of Iran (the GSI) as a member of young earth scientists (YES) would like to introduce its potential and compare its ability with other organizations and active societies and NGOs through the world. No doubt, holding the "Geotourism" approach in the fourth conference of YES is an opportunity for professionals, students and youths to come together in this field and in addition to present their research achievements, they can exchange ideas and information with other practitioners. Thus, the development of this new knowledge will be helped.
