Become an ambassador

The Business & Community Ambassador Programme is for all organisations (profit & not-for-profit) who support the Waitaki Whitestone aspiring Geopark and are proud to be part of the concept. Let's together promote our special place, our local businesses, slow tourism and community education and resilience.

A business ambassador might be a retail or tourism business that aligns with our values and  appreciates the benefit of the Geopark to their business. A community ambassador might be an organisation that works towards a vision that is aligned with ours.
