Linking Tourism & Conservation (LT&C) is based on the compelling idea that tourism, the industry that benefits so much from protected natural areas,can play the most critical role in ensuring their sustained and effective management world-wide.By identifying and highlighting specific examples, LT&C facilitates the sharing of knowledge, experience and effective practices that mutually benefit tourism and nature conservation in protected areas.
LT&C is an innovative and effective shared network. It is designed to develop tools and incentives for replication of best practices and examples of sustainable tourism that supports the establishment and management of national parks and other types of protected areas. LT&C works with individuals, businesses, and governments to strengthen the benefits of both sustainable tourism and area protection and management. (our mission)
LT&C envisions a world, where travellers are inspired by experiencing nature and the beauty of natural landscapes. This is supported through a global network of well-managed protected areas that represent the world’s diversity of habitats and ecosystems. Tourism business and individual tourists play a major role in supporting, implementing and sustaining this high quality network of national parks and protected nature areas. (our vision)
LT&C sees in the Lake Constance Foundation a partner in long term expertise in lake management, sustainable tourism, environmental friendly agriculture and forestry, renewable energies, sustainable land use planning and topics related to business and biodiversity.
