QESHM GLOBAL GEOPARK in a glance
In a quick review, Geopark is a concept of implementing of interactive scientific, social and cultural programs to engage "all" stockholders in a sensitive geological / environmental area. Geoparks are specific parts of the world, working together for interpretation, promotion and protecting the geological heritage as well as culture.
Global Geoparks Network -the bureau under supports of Earth Science division of UNESCO, helps members of the network by advising and networking. Members of the network revalidates each four year by the bureau.
Qeshm is an interesting island located in the middle of Hormuz strait in Persian Gulf. This island is a "free economic zone" that means free of visa, free of tax, plus more facilities for the investors. The area is about 1500 Sq. Kilometers and currently inhabits more that 120'000 population. The best time for visiting the island is between the ends of September till the mids of March. It is also not recommended to visit the island second mid of March as it is very crowded by more than one million of domestic tourists who are enjoying their new-year holidays. Qeshm is also a special destination for ecotourists during the year.
Piramoon Designers Company according to its Environmental intentions and experiences has involved in process of forming and launching of Qeshm Global Geopark since 2003 by the invitation of Environmental Management of Qeshm Free Area Organization.
We have made management plan for Qeshm Global Geopark that also contains a Zoning Plan, a Land-use Plan and an Action Plan that are the basis of geopark development. As well we produced many other documents like the Codes, Expanding Limits, Constructional Drawings, Monuments Designing and so on.
