The Operation is co-financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and will be implemented in the following Subprojects: 1. Development of Geological Mapping of Chelmos-Vouraikos Geopark, 2. Production of printed and digital information material for Chelmos-Vouraikos Geopark and 3. Signage of Chelmos-Vouraikos Geopark.

The purpose of marking the Geotopes and giving prominence to the Geo-trails is to inform, educate (welcome and information signs), and orient (direction signs), creating the required feeling of security for the visitor and giving him the opportunity to plan its course.

Through the implementation of the project it will be possible to give prominence to the geo-trails throughout the Geopark, which will promote the alternative forms of tourism in the area, through the combined promotion of geodiversity and biodiversity, as well as the promotion of sites with archaeological, religious, historical and cultural interest.

Signage with welcome, information and direction signs is required for promoting Geotopes of Chelmos-Vouraikos UNESCO Global Geopark, which have a unique geological history and they are unique landscapes and sites of cultural heritage and tourism interest.
