The designation of local geological sites is one way of recognising and protecting important geodiversity and landscape features for future generations to enjoy.
Geodiversity is defined as
'the variety of rocks, fossils, minerals, landforms, soils and natural processes, such as weathering, erosion and sedimentation, that underlie and determine the character of our natural landscape and environment'
The London Geodiversity Partnership seeks to share good practice, influence policy and establish cross-London working for geodiversity. GiGL is working with the London Geodiversity Partnership to manage data related to the capital's geodiversity sites.
