On the 21st October 2014 the ‘Geodiversity Charter for England’ was launched by Environment Minister Lord De Mauley at a Westminster MP briefing. The Charter establishes the vision that England’s ‘Geodiversity is recognised as an integral and vital part of our environment, economy and heritage that must be safeguarded and managed for current and future generations’.
Published by the English Geodiversity Forum the Charter sets out how we can all work towards this vision and the contribution that all sectors of society can make. The QRA Executive Committee has endorsed the Charter and the QRA is listed as a named supporter.
