The "Les Amis du Géoparc Beaujolais" association provides support for the Geopark Beaujolais initiative.

For the Geopark Beaujolais project, the Beaujolais Mixed Union (SMB) started the ball rolling and drew up the application for the Beaujolais region for the "UNESCO Global Geopark" label. Since 2012, the Beaujolais Mixed Union and all its representatives have been working together with local players on this joint project. The region's application was an opportunity to showcase its various riches, especially in terms of geology, while consolidating local and sustainable development policies, particularly concerning local development, tourism, education, teaching and research. In 2018, the Beaujolais region was officially recognised as a UNESCO Global Geopark. Every 4 years, this label will be reassessed to determine whether it can be renewed or not.


In order to support the Beaujolais Mixed Union in its efforts and raise awareness of the label with the locals and encourage them to get involved, the "Les Amis du Géoparc Beaujolais" association was founded thanks to the founding members of the Geopark initiative. The goal is to work on developing the Geopark.


The "Les Amis du Géoparc Beaujolais" association works in partnership with the Beaujolais Mixed Union, the leading organisation behind Geopark Beaujolais.

Geopark Beaujolais

Famous throughout the world for its wines and vineyards, the Beaujolais is also a region shaped by man, who has reaped the benefits of the soil's diversity. Its past is literally written in stone: in the golden, red, white, grey or black rocks and stones that have visibly been put to good use in local construction. This remarkable geology has given rise to great diversity, not only in the landscapes and heritage, but also in terms of human activity, in the culture and traditions that form the identity of the Beaujolais region.
