Colin Beardon claims that the proposed designation of Waiheke as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is "the only idea with sufficient weight" to preserve Waiheke's future. What do you think of this idea? Is this something that a local community board should be endorsing or even debating, or is it best left as a movement outside of this body?

Waiheke Radio offers the facilities, advice, training and technical support for Waiheke residents to create and broadcast their own radio programmes and to provide radio that reflects the unique character and needs of the Waiheke community.
