LT&C presently participates at the Global Green Destinations Days in Nijmegen, the Netherlands (see programme for September 28), which are performed by our member and partner, Green Destinations. We like to use this occasion also to make our members, particularly those who have authored an LT&C-Example, aware that for the 4th time, the Sustainable Destinations Global Top 100 competition is organized by ten leading sustainable tourism organizations and networks.
WWF Adria has invited LT&C to participate in a conference in Croatia, which is organised in the framework of the project “Central Europe Eco-Tourism: tools for nature protection˝ and aims to establish an innovative sustainable tourism management system in protected areas and Natura 2000 sites in Austria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, and Slovenia. The Conference is creating an opportunity for the representatives of national-level decision makers and agencies in the field of nature protection and sustainable tourism, managers of protected areas and Natura 2000 sites and other experts to discuss and share experience about the most successful measures of reducing the negative impact of tourist visits in protected areas and Natura 2000 sites as well as inclusive conservation governance models. If you are interested, read more on the LT&C-Calendar, and get registered. Continue reading “LT&C invited to conference in Croatia of “Central Europe Eco-Tourism: tools for nature protection˝”
LT&C reported earlier about Raet national park, Norway’s so far largest marine protected area. After the shortest planning time of any Norwegian national park (only 4 years), the park on the Skagerrak coast of Southern Norway was established in December 2016. Another record was achieved with the several thousand participants at its inauguration in summer 2017. This summer, the main initiator of the park, former Aust Agder governor Øystein Djupedal, opened Raet’s first information center, which is situated in the basement of the building (Kunnskapshavn) in Arendal, where also LT&C has its office. Our involvement in the further discussions about the development of Raet national park, therefore, is a given. For the German readers, we can in this context point to an article in the recent edition of the magazine “Nationalpark”.
