Riviera ARC will be taking part in the 2012 Geoparks Communications Weekend on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May. The callsign for the English Riviera Geopark is GB6GEO and is co-ordinated by Martin Foster G3VOF. The English Rivera was designated a UNESCO-supported Geopark in 2007 due to the significance of the local geological formations. The English Rivera Geopark is the only urban Geopark in the world – there are currently 87 sites. The event station will be operating at Cockington Court, Torquay.
