The Hakone Geopark Promotion Council, established in 2011, consists of 72 affiliates including educational institutions, volunteer groups, a wide variety of companies and NPOs in the area. Each organization works for Geopark's activity not only independently but also cooperating each other.

For instance, some affiliates launched a committee to develop Hakone Geopark's regional specialties. 15 local specialties which satisfied specific conditions were chosen among the public. It is our next task to promote these products.
