Platåbergens UNESCO Global Geopark (UGGP) is situated in west Sweden and is since 2022 Sweden’s first UNESCO Global Geopark. Platåbergens UGGp is the product of a collaboration between nine Swedish municipalities and the geopark covers an area of 3690 km2. The classic table mountains have been important for geological research since the 18th century and bear witness to several geological processes that are important if we are to understand the development of our planet. The table mountains contain a rich fauna of early Paleozoic fossils as well as some of the world’s oldest meteorite finds. The mountains have created the conditions for a rich cultural heritage, valuable nature types, and fascinating destinations.
