On 11 December 2014, the Europarc Federation awarded the Park the certificate validating its candidacy for the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (ECST). Incorporation of sustainable development at all levels of tourism activity is a challenge to be met, providing opportunities for professional actors to stand out from the crowd while meeting ever an increasing demand for authenticity and unspoiled nature.
Held in Orleans on Wednesday 10 December 2014 and organised by the Loire Public Establishment, this free event is open to all comers and aims to be an opportunity for exchange of experience and transfer of know-how with regard to cooperation on integrated management of river basins. The day will combine theme-based roundtables and targeted encounters with cooperation project partners.
From 6 May to 1st June 2014, the Maison de Loire in Anjou, the Loire Authion Valley Distric Community and the Loire Authion Tourist Office - all three organisers of this big intercommunal celebration - bring the region to life with the colours of Canada for several weeks, with the guest river of honour THE SAINT-LAURENT.
The UNESCO “River Culture” Chair is now a reality, under the joint aegis of the Universities of Tours (Karl Wantzen, IMACOF) and Angers (Aziz Ballouche), in partnership with Mission Val de Loire.
