Assessment Method


  1. Interview (by an R2G Assessment Panel)

  2. Field assessment (depending on the applicant's qualifications and interview results)

Assessment Result

  1. Candidates who pass the assessment will become provisional R2Gs for the first six months.

  2. The list of R2Gs will be published on the AGHK and R2G websites. The list will also be distributed to other global geoparks and relevant tourism organizations.

  3. A provisional R2G will become an R2G after passing a six-month probation period and will receive an R2G certificate.

  4. To maintain their status, R2Gs are required to pass a biennial reassessment.


R2Gs are subject to disqualification if (a) they fail to pass the probation period, (b) they fail the reassessment, or (c) they have been confirmed to have acted against R2G regulations.


All assessors are volunteers. Applicants selected for interview are required to pay a non-refundable payment of HKD750 for administration costs.

Applicants who successfully pass the assessment will need to pay for their own-tailor-made uniform (about HKD300 per set). An R2G identification badge is provided to all R2Gs to make them easy to identify during R2G tours. This identification badge must be returned to the Secretariat if the person is no longer an R2G.


The Secretariat is accepting R2G applications now. The application details and interview schedule will be published here soon. If the number of applications is very large, the Secretariat will draw lots to select candidates for an interview. Those who are not selected for the interview will be regarded as applicants for the next round of applications; they do not have to re-submit their applications.
