Geo cafe Gorontalo
Background the research
In our project, we are conducting geopark study in Gorontalo because the establishment of the Gorontalo Geopark could be one of the sustainable solutions for eco-tourism which can create job opportunities for their sustainable daily lives. Therefore, we are making connections between various stakeholders and scientists to discuss the things such as their surrounded great nature and original culture as an opportunity called geocafe. Geocafe activities are held at local places such as potential geosites, schools, or even online as a community of practice (COP) to learn and discuss scientific knowledge and indigenous knowledge about nature and culture. The discussions can also lead to know the local problems and sharing innovative ideas in a sustainable way. Although the pandemic Covid-19 crisis is still going on, we are working together to seek a better way for making progress in our Geopark activities.
