Human rights matter – also in tourism!

On the international Human Rights Day on December 10, Naturefriends International appeals to the tourism industry to increase the commitment to human rights.

On December 10, 1948, the UN general assembly agreed to Resolution 217 A, the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”. Today, 70 years later, human rights are still being violated in many parts of the world – also in the tourism industry.

Green 10 European Parliament Elections Manifesto

In May 2019, EU citizens will have the chance to vote for a greener, healthier and fairer Europe. The Green 10 – a network of the ten largest European environmental NGOS amongst them NFI – show how a vote for a greener and healthier Europe could lead to major wins for people and the planet. A Europe that puts people and our planet first will also be prepared to address the challenges of migration, security and competitiveness. Help share our call to EU leaders ahead of 2019! @Europarl_EN elections

Naturefriends’ Treasured Trails

After this really hot summer, we are hoping for a nice fall with many perfect hiking days. Tired of your usual routes? Ready for a challenge?

Thanks to everyone who sent in their favourite #TreasuredTrails – quite the collection! 

Has tourism reached its limits?!

„Over Tourism“: Our own behaviour is part of the solution.

„Tourists go home!“ Since last year, we can hear the cries and protests from the local communities against the flood of tourists more and more often. “Over Tourism” is the new buzzword, which also plays a big part in the discussions and panels happening at ITB, the international tourism fair currently happening in Berlin. There are many reasons for the current overload at tourism hotspots – our travel and consumption patterns are part of it.
