Panasonic New Zealand Partners with Wero Whitewater Park2nd May 2016     By: Panasonic Media

Panasonic New Zealand is a proud partner of Auckland's new Vector Wero Whitewater Park, an artificial river and water course for recreation, sports, emergency services training, school programmes and youth development.

Located in the heart of Manukau, Vector Wero Whitewater Park is a world class tourism destination that engages with local communities and youth. It is New Zealand's first facility which offers an artificial river and water course for recreation, sports, and emergency services training, school programmes and youth development.

As part of the partnership, Panasonic New Zealand has supported Wero Whitewater Park with the development of their interactive state-of-the-art educational facilities. Before hitting the water, students are briefed with an interactive water safety session which promotes water safety and teaches students the confidence and survival skills to be better prepared and safely enjoy the water.

Led by Olympic gold medal champion Ian Ferguson and his team, the park is developed and operated on behalf of the community by Second Nature Charitable Trust which reinvests the corporate dollars into educational and community programmes.

Stewart Fowler, Managing Director at Panasonic New Zealand says "we are thrilled to be a partner of the brand new Vector Wero Whitewater Park in Manukau. After years of planning and development, it's amazing to see this truly spectacular and innovative new venue in our local community.

We are also very proud to help educate Kiwi youth on the importance of being safe in the water through interactive videos, which will displayed on Panasonic products in the Wero Whitewater Park educational facility" adds Stewart.
