The International Wadden Sea is not only a World Heritage Site, it is also the largest marine protected area in Europe and most important “intercontinental airport” for coastal birds along the East Atlantic Flyway. And the different national parks and other protected areas within the three Wadden Sea countries, The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark,  each year are visited by several million tourists. Linking Tourism & Conservation since last year is profiling the Wadden Sea as one of the global LT&C-examples, where tourism is supporting protected areas. Now, WWF in cooperation with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat (CWSS) and others, has come up with a new teaching resource for sustainable tourism in the Wadden Sea World Heritage, which may lead to further strengthening of the LT&C-example. Read the official news:
 Tourism and Nature Conservation – Does this go together? The “World Heritage Teaching Kit – Sustainable Tourism in the Wadden Sea” deals with this question in 6 learning stations designed for pupils in lower secondary education.

The Wadden Sea along the North Sea coast is a worldwide unique nature area and at the same time a popular holiday destinations. Which role does the nature – protected as National Park and recognized as World Heritage Site – play for the tourism sector? What does the tourism mean as economic factor in the region and for the life of the local population? And how can nature conservation and tourism go “hand in hand” and benefit from each other?

The “World Heritage Teaching Kit – Sustainable Tourism in the Wadden Sea” deals with these and further questions in 6 learning stations designed for pupils in lower secondary education. The 44 page kit comprises comprehensive background information and numerous master copies for worksheets.

The material has been compiled by WWF Germany within the framework of the PROWAD project and was funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Bingo Lottery. It is available for download in English, German and Dutch. A Danish version is in preparation.
