European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas

The European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (CETS) is a management tool, especially designed for territories with protected natural spaces, whose mission is to make tourism compatible with conservation. It includes the concept of making a tourist visit to a place and trying to make its impact on the environment, society and the economy positive.

CETS promotes Sustainable Destinations through effective planning, management structures and participatory processes in order to ensure that visitors can enjoy nature in a more sustainable way.
