On 2015, Imbabura province submitted its candidacy to be recognized as UNESCO World Geopark; after a first assessment and after having accepted the suggestions made by the evaluation committee; the final Dossier was presented in February 2018. The Imbabura Geopark Project brings together nine volcanic complexes; the name is associated with the historical, cultural and linguistic roots of the province where the Kichwa language and traditional indigenous customs are still considered as everyday values. The project is a participatory process that seeks to consolidate its cultural identity based on the recognition, respect and conservation of its geological, archaeological, culture, with the different ways of life, Cosmo visions, customs, and traditions of such people, for the implementation of a model of sustainable territorial development that leads its population to a better quality of life.
