EUROPARC Star Awards
The Sustainable Tourism Partners Awards

We know how Spring is a busy time for all of us... 
we decided to extend the deadline of the Star Awards
so you don't miss the chance to get the recognition you deserve!

EUROPARC Invites all current Charter Business Partners and Tour Operators currently working with the a EUROPARC Sustainable Destination. In these STAR Awards, EUROPARC seeks to celebrate, champion and acknowledge the effort and investments made by tourism businesses to be more sustainable and help care and protected their natural and cultural heritage. To be less impactful on the environment in which the businesses reside, to work alongside the park, and to play a supporting role in the community are all the excellent actions of “Charter Partners”.

The winners will be announced at the EUROPARC Charter Award Ceremony 2019. A local handover ceremony can be arranged for each winner, but winners will be invited to attend the Award Ceremony at the European Parliament, in Brussels, in late November/early December 2019. (Date to be confirmed)

The winner in each category will go to a public vote, where the overall winner will receive, along with a representative from the park or Protected Area with which they are a partner, a free place at the EUROPARC Conference 2020!

We really want to learn of your experiences and share your stories, so we have endeavoured to ask
question in different areas in which you may contribute to the Sustainable Destination. We have tried to make the questions as intuitive as possible to answer.

There is one compulsory category- Contribution to Conservation, which each applicant must complete and 3 optional ones. Contribution to conservation will appear at the end of each category. As this is a fundamental of the Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas, we are asking you to tell us about your direct actions or contributions for habitats and species of your Protected Area.

Eligibility

If you are a business of any kind or tour operator, who has a current validated partnership with a park or protected area itself currently awarded by EUROPARC, then you are eligible to apply!
