- > Become a geopartner
There are numerous local players now involved in creating projects or initiatives in partnership with Geopark Beaujolais. They give their support to the Geopark scheme and involve the Geopark in their activities, to create new mediation tools, new products, initiatives or events. The "Geopark Beaujolais Geopartners" network was founded in order to support these organisations. The network provides support for organisations working on initiatives or projects in partnership with Geopark Beaujolais. To become a geopartner, one of the conditions is to be involved in an initiative or project in partnership with the Geopark. The charter applies to: • tourism service providers committed to providing top quality, and adapting their organisation to sustainable tourism; • museums, associations and teaching establishments working on the topics related to the Geopark; • local players working on a topic linked to the Geopark and showcasing the local economy. This list is by no means exhaustive, and other types of activities can be added, depending on how the network evolves. The organisation in question will be added to the network under the name of its representative.

Famous throughout the world for its wines and vineyards, the Beaujolais is also a region shaped by man, who has reaped the benefits of the soil's diversity. Its past is literally written in stone: in the golden, red, white, grey or black rocks and stones that have visibly been put to good use in local construction. This remarkable geology has given rise to great diversity, not only in the landscapes and heritage, but also in terms of human activity, in the culture and traditions that form the identity of the Beaujolais region.
