The comprehensive Colombian initiative Geodiversity in Territories and Cities’ Learning Pathway is stressing the pivotal role of geodiversity in territorial management. Focusing on a conceptual framework, social outreach, and educational modules, the talk assesses geodiversity’s impact on goods, services, and environmental zoning for informed community decision-making. Drawing from practical examples in Colombian regions like Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and Choco Biogeographic, the initiative showcases successful applications. The initiative co-designed, in collaboration with academia, government, ethnic groups, NGOs, and the private sector, effective geological-environmental zoning, identifying geodiversity hotspots and ideal locations for Living Labs and geo-routes. The Learning Pathway addresses Geoheritage, peacebuilding, and geo-services, with a concluding exploration of potential applications in Berlin.
