During the founding of "the Geopark Week", elementary schools located in the Papuk Geopark held presentations where school children could meet the geological heritage of their area, and the way the Geopark takes care of protecting geologically important areas. A special word was given on "the International Year of Planet Earth", where children were met with the creation of Earth and its entire evolution. Children were shown just how endangered the future of Earth is, mostly by the deeds of man, and the future will depend on these acts.
After the presentation in schools of Orahovica and Kutjevo, a workshop was held on "How are fossils made?", in the Voćin school children could meet the volcanoes through the workshop "Make your own volcano". Children from the Elementary school of Velika were in Papuk and participated in the "How to make a good photograph in nature" workshop a week earlier. After that, the best photographs were chosen, which were presented to the entire school afterwards.
During "the Geopark Week" in the mentioned schools, there have also been artistic works by children made on the "Planet Earth" theme.
In the end, all schools received a thank offering for participating in "the Geopark Week", and were given a gift - books called "Earth" for their libraries.
