22. Do you consider that the event will attract press interest?:
23. If yes, please summarise up to 4 key points you think will be of press interest:
1) Even the pavements on which we walk everyday can be an important part of our geological heritage.
2) It was the keen eye of one member of the public, Mr Ken Shaw from Edinburgh, that stimulated an entire research and conservation project.
3) Geodiversity is as important as biodiversity.
24. Do you have any other comments you would like to make or information you would like to include?:
The Pavement Fish Project is not only scientific project or a project to enthuse the public and encourage people to contribute to science around their own town but also a project to introduce the concept and importance of conservation of geodiversity; preserving the richness of geological materials not just in the wilderness but in our towns and cities. This event bridges gaps between science, history, culture and society and also investigates how current policy is affecting, and future policy will affect, our geodiversity.
