Abstract

What geoheritage means for contemporary society? Socioeconomic developments pushed us in a new era, defined postmodern. Technological development requires a knowledge that goes hand in hand with its speed. The break between progress, society, environment, could be causing unpredictable effects on the planet: this is the Anthropocene paradigm. Knowledge, provided by science, seems to be the only weapon that leads us, troughs the shared awareness, toward changes. New and unconventional ways of communicating sciences, particularly earth sciences, are requested to provide a responsible interaction with the environment, which should massively involve societal tissue for a sustainable future.
