Odsherred Geopark was the first in Denmark to be admitted as an internationally recognised geopark into the Global Geoparks Network at the 6th  International UNESCO Geopark Conference in Canada. The inclusion in the UNESCO network is the result of a development project conducted by Paya Haugh Fenger, a commercial PhD student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.

Research into user involvement as a basis for the Geopark
As part of her research project, the PhD student, Paya Hauch Fenger from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design was responsible  for a geopark festival in Odsherred, a prototype for a festival, in which residents, holiday home visitors and the local business community were invited to join in the creative process. The goal of the research project is to try out various forms of participatory design, in which residents, companies and various stakeholders play a direct role in idea development for the geopark, instead of having the geopark landing as something unknown and added on from outside.
