Not that the Charter itself needed a facelift! However, some of the documentation did. The European Charter for Sustainable Tourism has been going strong now for over a decade. It was therefore high time that somebody with a great deal of experience in Charter matters had a good look at the manuals and documents for the Charter. It also needed a fair bit of money to finance the process.
Along came the German tour operator TUI who, in its Environment and Sustainability Report 2009/2010, stated unambiguously, "We firmly believe that sustainability and responsibility are key factors in a company’s economic success, in particular in difficult times." And they were as good as their words. Without a moment's hesitation, they agreed to fund the revision and redesign of all the Charter documentation, a job which was carried out, quickly and efficiently, by EUROPARC Consulting and its design team.
EUROPARC Consulting has been involved with the Charter right from the outset. The company is without doubt the most experienced operator in relation to the Charter.
The result is a brilliant double-set of manuals and documents which are now much more accessible and easier to read. They will ensure that new Charter candidates can follow the process from the first contact to the final award of the Charter with clear guidance.
EUROPARC Consulting is grateful for the privilege of having been involved with this important task. And thanks to TUI, of course, for its generous support.

EUROPARC Consulting has always been known for its wide-ranging expertise, flexible tailor-made service and reliable, cost-effective service. Our new campaign “Count on us” emphasizes these points: If you are looking for reliable, effective, experienced help from protected-area experts – EUROPARC Consulting is ready to provide it. And, even better, if you are a member of the EUROPARC Federation you can take advantage of the particularly favourable rates which EUROPARC Consulting offers for all members of the EUROPARC Federation.
EUROPARC Consulting is the consultancy arm of the EUROPARC Federation, and exists to share the vast range within the EUROPARC network. Experts with first-hand experience in working for protected areas are matched to individual assignments. As we only work in the field of protected areas, all the experiences and expertise gained by our experts stay within the network and benefit any subsequent project. In addition, any surplus gained by EUROPARC Consulting is fed directly back into the Federation, thus benefitting again the whole EUROPEAN network.
In virtually all parts of Europe, many people working in or for protected areas are experiencing funding cuts and staff reductions. Our constant policy of providing high-quality low-cost expert consultancy services has been a real bonus in these difficulties times. This has always been useful, but is now essential. Whether it is long-term or short-term management assistance, one-off projects, organising study visits, staff exchange, seminars and conferences, our low-cost approach is now even more valued than ever. As before, count on us.
